Students of the Design Department, Art Academy of Latvia will work at Design Fiction workshop organised by Electrolux Latvia on February 22-23, 2010!
Any product you can imagine today will probably be technologically possible by 2050. But with what kind of needs would we actually have in 40 years time? What might the world and our homes look like by then? To give you a feel for future, we’ll introduce several scenarios for 2050. We’ll design stories and speculate what those futures might mean for different people. And we’ll explore product ideas based on that. In this workshop, we’re looking for radically new ideas and concepts - things no one has thought of before. To help you do that, we’ve invited people with strong ideas about what might influence our world in the next decades in fields such as medicine, technology and food.
