«Good Design is…» - BDW

What is good design and which should be its role faced with the current challenges to humanity? During the Barcelona Design Week, FAD (The Fostering Arts and Design) wants to talk about good design.

«Good Design is…»: reflections on the principles of good design

Based on the «10 principles of good design» that Dieter Rams, one of the most influential designers of the 20th century established in the 1970s, Foment de les Arts i del Disseny (FAD) proposes «Good Design is ...» (https://www.barcelonadesignweek.com/en/fad-for-good-design/), a set of activities that reflect on what good design is and what its role should be in the face of the current challenges facing humanity, which are included within the framework of the Barcelona Design Week.

«Good design is...» Talks

Programme of conferences with prominent names such as Feminist Internet, Lolo & Sosaku, Chris Lefteri, Lievore + Altherr Désile Park, Apparatu, Lacol, Curro Claret, Tina Gorjanc, Zak Group, Deutsche & Japaner, Maria ke Fisherman or Anne Lacaton.

These national and international references will explain their projects, the principles and values they follow in their professional practice, and their personal view of the principles of Rams's good design, either by alignment or as opposed to the designer's original vision.
