Workshop: the participants of the workshop will investigate the process that brings ideas into the design of an object applying the guidelines set by the guest designers, and they will come up with a concept concerning the given general theme “TRUTH TELLERS” that will be analyzed and developed into drawings and simple models or experiments. The aim is to establish an open dialogue between participants and designers, stimulating active confrontation within a notion of design geared more towards producing visions than forms.
