From this Thursday onwards, our friends at Designboost are hosting a series of events at the Hem & Villa fair in Malmö, Sweden. Designboost, which is the brainchild of the communication strategist Peer Eriksson and design and future strategist David Carlson, will be tackling the subject of sustainable design through a series of what they’re calling Design Orienteering events.
Visitors to the show will be able to experience a number of knowledge based events including The Sustainable Children’s House - In which children will be able to play with a number of classic toys from Brio and paint their imagination onto a range of white furniture supplied by Artek. At the end of each day, the chairs will be sold at auction with the proceeds going to SOS children’s villages.
Designboost will be visualizing their proprietary Sustainable Wheel through seven different mini environments containing products, descriptions and filmed interviews together with two conceptualizations of sustainable design; 2nd Cycle by Artek and Against Throwawaism by Iittala. Take a look below to find out more details and to see more images from the last Designboost event:
Other events include The Interactive Wall - A competition where the visitors will be invited to bring pictures from their own homes that show smart design solutions (winners will be announced every day) and Stardust - a minimalistic Poetry Concert by the Swedish artist Jacques Werup.As with their previous events, Designboost will be presenting a full program of lectures and interviews under the titles of At Home with Designboost and Kullander. The scheduled speakers include Thomas Sandell, Jan Boris-Möller, Maria Midby Arén, Eero Koivisto, Mats Theselius, Katarina Graffman, Stefan Nilsson, Björn Jeffery, Elisabeth Lejon and Homelab.
