Operating at the intersection of biology, technology and society, Faber Futures is founded on the belief that design provides the instruction manual that will build solutions to the biggest challenges our planet faces today. At Faber Futures, we are led by five principles of design. These guide the work we produce, for whom that work is intended, and with whom that work is created. Through the design of, with and from biology, we centre sustainability, equity and care in the creation of the future we want, and in defence of the world that is yet to come…
We have been working on a set of principles that will continue to guide our work as a studio. These principles act not only as a brief for us, in sharing them as a manifesto the values are a provocation and an invitation for other designers to join us in designing for better systems.
Dezeen 15 is a 15-day event marking Dezeen’s 15th birthday. As part of the celebrations 15 designers have been asked to present an idea or manifesto that could make the world a better place over the next 15 years.
As one of the 15 Contributors, including studio Superflux, Joseph Grima or Jalila Essaïdi, Natsai presented our manifesto for biodesign on Tuesday, 16 November as part of a live interview with Marcus Fairs, editor of Dezeen. The manifesto is live and ready to read here on the Dezeen website.
