Design Schools Workshop
Every May, WantedDesign brings a group of students from International design schools together to participate in the WantedDesign Design Schools Workshop.
Conceived as a collaborative activity rather than a competitive one where teams in this activity are composed by students from different schools and backgrounds. The program is an important part of WantedDesign, and has been very successful in promoting the schools, fostering the creation of an international network of young designers, as well as in initiating partnerships between schools and manufacturers.
Conducted by the Pratt Institute with Constantin Boym, Industrial Design Chair, and Ignacio Urbina Polo, Associate Professor of Industrial Design, the International group of students will be asked to explore this year’s theme: “HyperHybrid”. The challenge is the ideation of projects that celebrate differences through multifunction objects and a production process that combines new technologies with the traditional making process and materials.
Participating schools list: Pratt Institute, Art Center College of Design, ENSCI les ateliers, Centro, Aalto University
