Otherness: A Manifesto for Radical Innovation
Takram

Takram, Japan’s leading creative innovation firm, invites you to join a conversation between their Tokyo and London studios that explores their belief that we are standing at a major turning point for innovation and creativity that demands a new approach to design.

100% Norway in 60 Minutes
100% Norway 
-
100% Norway’s curator Max Fraser is joined by Norwegian designers in a discussion aimed at understanding the essence of the country’s design scene today. Is national identity still important in our global business? How much does the nation's strong 20th Century design heritage spur on its contemporary designers or act as a burden? Are current influences coming from much further afield than Scandinavian?

Indian Design: Past & Present
Phaidon 
-
This panel will take the opportunity to discuss the recent publication of Sar: The Essence of Indian Design, Phaidon Press, with the authors, a designer featured in the book, a renowned design expert, and the commissioning editor.

The panel will discuss how a language of design within India is being articulated through the book through anonymous and everyday objects moving from 5000 years back to the present day, and how the objects were selected and categorised. With Spandana Gopal of Tiipoi, we will speak about how the old influences the new in terms of technique, material, and use. With Max Fraser, we will speak about how to create education around design from India so that it can stand in equality next to what is celebrated in design internationally (Scandinavian, Italian, etc.), and with Emilia Terragni, we will discuss why she commissioned the book now, and why that is relevant.
