“Marva Griffin’s career is symbolic of her ability to understand and steer all the different expressions and phases of design: from concept to development, from production to promotion and communication. She valorises the distinguishing features of cultures, countries, generations and the industrial potential of design, and therefore also its productive and financial impact. Constantly on the look-out for ideas, innovations, languages and authors capable of expressing new horizons and visions – with different sensitivities and cultures – Marva Griffin has valued and supported them throughout her magisterial career and she continues to do so.”
This is the Polytechnic University of Milan’s official motivation for conferring an Honorary Degree in Product Service System Design on Marva Griffin Wilshire.
