Airplane tickets ready: Design Season starts
For music lovers, summer is festival season; for design lovers alike autumn comes filled with alternatives: London prepares both its Design Biennale and Design Festival this September, and design weeks will spread across the world during next few months in Paris, Helsinki, Vienna, São Paulo, Seoul, Beijing, Torino...
Mexico will have its design week too, and interestingly it has been named 2018 Design Capital by the WDO (World Design Organization), an international non-governmental organization which aim is to promote the profession of industrial design. They work as a consultative body to the UN and are deeply engaged with the SDGs. It makes us wonder if any other disciplines of design would ever have the chance of playing that role at international level? ICO-D, AGI, anyone...?
