Young designers: five emblematic projects for a sustainable future

A new generation is moving towards increasingly circular, localised and regenerative practices, both for the environment and for the communities they serve.

Committed but not necessarily ideological, mobilised for the environment, above all in favour of a wider social inclusiveness. These are the main traits shared by the designers mapped by “Infinite Creativity for a Finite World”, a research project led by the curator and lecturer at ENSAD in Paris, Anna Bernagozzi. Launched as a contribution to the European call for papers 4Cs (from Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture) and already anticipated with an exhibition in Paris during the last lockdown, the platform promotes the work of young designers who see social innovation as an opportunity to experiment with capillary interventions driven by the desire for a synthesis between ecology and community redemption, often pursued through the tools of co-creation.

“With Infinite Creativity for a Finite World, I wanted to highlight works that allow the public and users to understand the design process and have the chance to experience it. I believe it is important to make people understand how projects like this can have an impact on everyday life, starting from fundamental issues such as the environment, post-colonialism and feminism,” Bernagozzi tells us.
