Changing with Beauty

From our friends at Domus Academy.

“Beauty will save the world”
Feodor Dostoevskij, The idiot, 1868-69

“If anything can save us: that will be beauty!”
Ettore Sottsass, 2001

In a time in which World and Design are concentrated on reflections on the major issues of sustainability, energy and globalization Domus Academy’s international students and Alumni wonder about the courage and the innocence needed to measure themselves with a so sublime and yet so present pursuit as the Search for Beauty.
Received quotes are ingredients of/for a graphic representation, that synthesize emerging terms and how them are related to the geographical origin of thoughts, showing how peculiarities of local culture impacts on personal interpretation of beauty.

The panel has been on show at That’s Design 2009, in the occasion of Salone del Mobile, the biggest event here in Milano concerning Design in all its multiple identities!
