The monthly interview series features a number of thought-provoking conversations with leading designers or people who have major impact on the design world. The first interview is with Ranjit Makkuni, who is the director of the Sacred World Foundation and the project director of the Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum.
Monthly essays explore issues in further depth. The first essay is on people-centred design as a means to affect cultural and social change, and is also written by Experientia partner Mark Vanderbeeken.
The monthly focus on design centres is a contribution to Torino 2008’s theme of design policy, which has the the aim of informing the activities of the Torino Design Centre but also of provoking a debate on what could become a national design policy in Italy. The first featured design centre is the one from Nagoya.
Finally, each month the site will feature an article from the international press. The first one discusses magic as a new metaphor for mobile devices.
