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.


Vienna Design Week is Austria´s largest design festival, with a variety of locations and events in Vienna. The event coordinated by Lilli Hollein reached its 12th iteration this year. Opening up creative processes and granting space for experimentation on site are core elements of the festival concept.

9:30 am meeting at the venue

10:00 am – 10:30 am (Lecture Room)
Welcome and introduction to the theme of the workshop by Barbara Brondi, Marco Rainò and the In Residence team.

10:30 am – 12:30 pm (Lecture Room)
Designers’ lectures: ideas, experiments, visions in relation to the general theme. Each guest designer will present and describe his/her own work and design process in a lecture of 45 minutes. All participants are invited to ask questions at the end of each presentation, to stimulate debate and discussion on specific topics.

12:30 am – 13:30 pm (Restaurant)
Lunch break

13:30 pm – 18:30 pm (Workshop Room)
The workshop will investigate the process that brings ideas into the design of an object. One group of 20 participants (divided into four groups of five people), applying the guidelines set by two guest designers, will come up with a concept concerning the given general theme “Intra-Temporality” 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. There is no obligation to come up with an object at the end of the two-day workshop. The only material that will be used at the workshop is everything that is available in a stationary store. All material will be provided by the IN Residence staff.
