Event description
Noted industrial designers, Dr. Simon Lockrey, Dr. Liam Fennessy, and Emma Luke will discuss How design can shape life.

About this event

From product development to the new wave of system and service design thinking that emerged in the 1990s, this seminar will cover products such as the Britax Safe'n Sound Baby Capsule (RMIT Design Archives's Robert Pataki collection) and the CaT Pin(RMIT Health Transformation Lab in partnership with Bolton Clarke). How can design shape life? In this seminar the panel and audience will consider ideas around product and service development with regard to health and wellbeing. We’ll explore the new wave of design thinking that emerged in the 1990s, and contrast contemporary practices with examples from the past held in the RMIT Design Archives collections.

This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2020, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.

Founded in 2007 the RMIT Design Archives (RDA) ) holds a unique place among Australia’s collecting institutions for its exclusive focus on design practice across all disciplines. From automotive to fashion and architecture the Archives holds exemplary collections of some of Melbourne’s most important and influential post-war designers.

The Archives and its staff support research into Melbourne’s designed environments, design professions and practices by providing scholars with access to a diverse range of digital and analogue records. It contributes to the cultural life of the city by hosting public events and lending items from its collections to other institutions for exhibitions.

The RDA publishes a Journal twice a year, contributes to academic research, hosts practice-based research programs for undergraduate and postgraduate students and supports PhD candidates working with the collections.
