This talk will feature two international figures on the design scene, Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design and Director of Research and Development at MoMA, and the journalist, critic and design expert Alice Rawsthorn, who, through their Design Emergency Instagram Live series of talks (@design.emergency), have discussed the amazing diversity of design and its efficacy in tackling urgent problems. The series gave rise to a book, Design Emergency: Building a Better Future, published by Phaidon on May. Their talk at SaloneSatellite, There Will Always Be a Design Emergency, will discuss the story behind the project and include a selection of past interviews as concrete examples of how designers are tackling complex challenges in every field, in a bid to make our lives safer, healthier, happier, more productive and inclusive.
