postgraduate course / 2 semesters / 60 ects
DOES NOT PROVIDE AN ACADEMIC DEGREE
The postgraduate course Circular design: cultural, systemic and material modes is based on a holistic vision anchored in the association between circular economy and design culture. The study proposes the involvement of different vocations in exploring ways to promote new attitudes and new material achievements that will favour the transition to the circular economic-industrial model. It is a design-led approach that asks for an interdisciplinary space where perspectives from different fields of knowledge converge while aiming at the elaboration of differentiated concepts tuned to regenerative systems. The action promotes reflective thinking about the circular theme combined with a hands-on approach defined by the practical exploration of the potential of ceramic material and by the identification of technical possibilities within the framework of the material’s circularity. The tableware sector is selected as a driving force for approaching the dual objective of the course: contribution to innovation in product design and production of multimedia and digital materials for wide dissemination, with a view to leading to a positive change of paradigm, both among citizens and professionals
working in the system.
