The design approach of 2010 European Design Award Festival was about raising questions to shift perspectives. ‘Design has become increasingly important in our current society, for business, government, and cultural life. It is not only about aesthetics, for the nice experience of beauty. It has a vital role, simply for society to communicate and function better.’
If that is the case: do we, in the current, global economic crisis, raise the right questions and address the current issues? Integrating the visual language of protest movements and abstractions of the European Flags, design and debate, Studio Dumbar created a range of items that invite you to join the discussion.
