You can stick with the image of lettuce, tomato, oil and vinegar or you can go beyond that, to unlearn what you know about the concept of “salad” and reinvent it. At the Salad Design Lab, the Masters of Design and Innovation have let their creativity run free, leaving preconceived ideas at home and designing something new.
At the Salad Design Lab, presented as a final activity in the first cross-curricular unit in the MAs, what matters most is to have fun: to have an afternoon to enjoy music and dance, with the backdrop of creativity and innovation.
