The Faculty of Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw was founded in 1977. Our programme follows holistic thinking about design. It combines product design, visual communication and fashion design with market knowledge, technology, social sciences, art and culture. The three fundamental pillars of our programme are design, art and theory. DesignFuture is the new MA programme. Its aim is to direct research and design towards our main goal that is the restoration of harmony between humanity and nature. This strategic goal requires sensitivity to social issues as well as synergy with developing technologies in order to build a new and ethical economy. Research and teaching concentrates around three wide, evolving, current subject areas: society, culture and the planet and their interconnectedness.
