The impact – above all cultural in nature – of technological evolution on society is changing the behavioral habits of individuals, in keeping with also radical variations that force our biorhythms to take on characteristics of dynamic variability. The subjection of vital rhythmical cycles to constant disturbance can influence our perception of time in a significant way; the trend towards a progressive and apparently irreversible acceleration of our lives forces us to value time as an increasingly precious resource.
What would happen if we were able to detect pockets of supplementary temporality amidst the folds of the single “current” moment? How could we exploit the availability of these additional fractions of time? Can Design Thinking develop a useful strategy to multiply these atoms of temporality recouped or created from scratch?
Furthermore: how can the designed objects we use function as devices of detection and application – or new formation – of these segments of extra-time we might indicate as particles of “intra-temporality”?

Julien Carretero (France, 1983) studied industrial design consecutively in France and in England before attending the Contextual Design MA at the Design Academy Eindhoven. In parallel of his studies in the Netherlands Julien worked for designer Maarten Baas. After his graduation in 2007 he founded Studio Julien Carretero, which moved to Brussels in 2012.
Giorgia Zanellato (Venice, 1987) and Daniele Bortotto (Pordenone, 1988), designers, both studied Industrial Design at the IUAV in Venice and went on to take a Master’s Degree in Product Design at the ECAL in Lausanne (Switzerland). Giorgia Zanellato then joined the team at Fabrica – Benetton Research Centre (Treviso), while Daniele Bortotto started to work for the Swiss designer Adrien Rovero. After thus completing their training, the two designers came together on their first joint collection, the Acqua Alta series in 2013.
