We were in Munich for an exhibition about 'Crafts and Innovation'.
And it was a great success, we were interviewed by a German TV channel, we met lots of very interesting crafty people and above all we had a blast. We represented the future of textiles and people were wowed by it. So to my fellow textile designers lets keep the dream alive, the illusion bigger and the surprise alive. The world might be falling a part, this should however never stop us from creating a dream.

This was a great day with great speakers. A lot was discussed about Design and Architecture. Instead of doing a summary of what was said by each speaker I have decided to write down a list of the key questions raised.
On the return of Ornament : Farshid Moussavi (Co founder of Foreign office Architects)
Function needs to be re-thought and broaden. How do we define ornament?
Marjan Colletti(Architect). How do we get digital architecture out of the realm of the geeky and techy?
"A state where ornament becomes the body, and the body becomes the ornament, blurring all the boundaries.
If ornament is celebration, what are we celebrating?
Design Fiction: Dunne and Raby ( Conceptual Designers and head of Interaction design @RCA)
What is Critical Design? How do designers integrate it in their work?
Isnt Critical Design about being sceptical, questioning what's going on, and then acting?
Experiments in Subtlety: Ronan Bouroullec
Its great to see someone who is so successful being so humble and nearly saying sorry for being so successful.
Ronan said "A good designer is like a good actor - you have to be dramatic one day and make people smile on another day."
All in all it was a great day, which showed once again that the boundaries between different disciplines are slowly being blurred and becoming non existent. The way forward is collaboration across different disciplines. The world of design isn't segmented anymore it is one big bubble.
