A European Digital Design – Myth or Reality?
Can European creatives design digital solutions across European cultures? A Parisian company can create and design a distinctive and expressive product for Paris. Can it do the same for Amsterdam?
Over a period of three days, six teams of design students and young professionals from Paris, Ile de France (ENSCI, Strate College, Les Gobelins) and Amsterdam, the Netherlands design and prototype a “street of the future” solution (e.g. interactive street furniture, smart communications or entertainment spaces, surfaces, or device) for a previously defined space in Amsterdam (the historic Red Light District).
A collaboration between the Futur en Seine, PICNIC, French and Dutch Designers, and the Paris and Amsterdam municipalities.
