Event Description

This year’s Swiss Design Network Conference 2012 in Lugano focuses on the dialectical relationship between design and disruptive ideas, practices and innovations.

In particular, we recognize that interaction and interactivity have become core concepts, questioning and reshaping a world of rapid change in society, sciences and technology. In addition, one could argue that design and design processes from all design fields – including fashion design, visual communication, interior design, industrial design, product design, and so forth – share a dominant role in making proposals for future interactions between the built world, human beings and systems. Thereby interaction and interactivity – in the sense of interaction design or in a broader sense as social interaction between actors – currently appear as promising concepts for the discourse of disruption and radical change in economy, culture, politics etc.
