Design Does* was and is a co-production between Elisava and the Barcelona Design Museum in collaboration with Domestic Data Streamers. The project collectively explores how design tackles the challenges faced by society, at times offering improvements and, at others, doing just the opposite.
Conceived to transcend the limits of space, time and conventional formats, this project explores the responsibility that lies with design and its impact on industry, people, social systems and cultural values. Design Does questions the designer’s role today and in the future as a provider of solutions, humanist, strategist and/or agent of change.
The showcase boasts a very high technological component and is conceived as a dynamic interaction and experimentation space that promotes dialogue with visitors. It is through a system of real-time data collection and display that visitors will interact with the items and share their sensations, reactions and opinions. The exhibition will serve as a centre of operations, connecting an extensive programme of activities and initiatives.
