1 Program Leader

The thesis projects within the European Design Labs are all very diverse – as diverse as the participating students and their individual fascination for different topics.

This year the fields of investigation ranged from, explorations into various raw materials, be it as a constructive element in the interior or by defining their hidden behaviors, up to light and colour in public spaces or how to harvest phytoplankton at home. Projects explored how mass-produced objects could become more individual, how time is measured and perceived and that humor and mistakes need as well their position in the Design field. Some students started with very personal goals and interests and some others were investigating how objects and systems could positively change existing social structures.

All in all they were enriching their personal scopes and took time to dig deeper into the field of design. It was a year full of experimentation, exploration, questions and quests for answers in order to define one's personal view of Design more closely. Looking at the final projects it is great to see the diversity and that Design has not just to follow one path.

Unit Coordinator of the Master, Designer

Gionata’s approach to design is firmly connected to the objective of questioning the significance of daily-life products, resulting in narrative investigations related to production processes, materials, artifacts and services.
