Design in Italy: New Thinking for the Next Era at La Triennale di Milano

21 October Oct 2018

On the occasion of our 50th anniversary, it is our pleasure to invite you to La Triennale di Milano on October 17 from 19.00 onwards.

Designers have always been on the frontiers of progress, creating new products, services, and realities. While times and challenges change, the need for innovative solutions to difficult challenges remains constant. Let’s come together to envision the next 50 years. What will be the role of our profession moving forward into this period of transformation? What is the mindset that it will require?

We’ve invited some of our friends, partners, and collaborators who have spearheaded this change to share their views with us.

Speakers include:

Mauro Porcini, SVP & Chief Design Officer of PepsiCo

Fabio Sergio, Regional Design Director EALA at Fjord

Kaori Shiina, CEO, Hands On Design

Francesco Zurlo, Deputy Dean and Head of Product Design Course, School of Design, Politecnico di Milano

With input from Stefano Boeri, architect & president of the La Triennale Foundation, Cono Studio and Giorgio Tartaro.

The conversation will be moderated by journalist Luca de Biase.

The panel discussion begins at 19.30. Afterward, all guests are welcomed to partake in the dialogue over an aperitivo. Together, we hope to create a shared idea for the future. We look forward to seeing you!
