The Future of European Design: Industry


24 May 2017

Disegno is delighted to launch its second podcast, available to download or stream from Disegno Daily's podcast page.

The second podcast, which focuses on the threat of a transition from free movement to protectionist values on the European design industry, is one of three episodes examining the future of European design. The first podcast in the series is available here and examined the impact of overseas fees on transnational education.

Based on programming hosted by Disegno and the British Council during Milan's Salone del Mobile in April 2017, the three podcasts focus on education, industry and policy respectively.

Are overseas fees corrosive to transnational education?

Can the European design industry survive a transition from free movement to protectionist values?

Why aren't all economies circular?

The second discussion is moderated by Disegno's founding editor Johanna Agerman Ross, and features the designer Ineke Hans; Jan Boelen, Z33 founding director and head of the Master Department Social Design at Design Academy Eindhoven; and Orhan Nikšić, CEO and co-founder of Zanat and a former senior economist at the World Bank.

This podcast was recorded live at Atelier Clerici during Salone Del Mobile in Milan on 5 April 2017.
