Vitra – a company that originated in the 1950s, has branched out into a cultural institution over the years, focusing on the wider context of design beyond its industrial value.
During two days of the Vitra Summit, an open-to-all streaming event hosted online on the 22nd and 23rd of October, the invited speakers, including Beatriz Colomina, Virgil Abloah, Asma Khan and Francis Kéré, gathered together to discuss the future of shared spaces in the following discussion panels: The Human and the Office, Design Matters, Dynamic Spaces and Remote World.
Our CEO Natsai Audrey Chieza, was in conversation with Vitra’s Chief Design Officer, Christian Grosen Rasmussen, and designer Konstantin Grcic, moderated by Jan Boelen – Creative Director at Atelier Luma. Their panel, Materials Matters, explored emerging processes and business models for materials production and consumption in the context of our multiple ecological and social crises. Faber Futures’ emphasis was on whole systems thinking for circular design in biodesign, and how biofabrication will open up possibilities for these frameworks that can not yet be anticipated.
