NOVELTY AND DESIGN

What is the relationship between novelty and innovation?

“Our understanding of what constitutes good design evolves constantly. In the last fifty years design has developed from being a tool to sell new things, to making new things in more effective ways, to imagining new systems and ways of addressing new realities. But, is novelty a fundamental aspect of good design?”*

Join independent design curator Maria Cristina Didero, OMA partner Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, and Alice Rawsthorn—author of Hello_World and Design as an Attitude—for a Miartalks conversation, moderated by creative director Tony Chambers.
