Explore the DS

The Design Society, founded in the year 2000, is an interdisciplinary community of academics and industry practitioners with the goal of developing and promoting a robust, usable and scalable means of designing complex solutions that a sustainable and globalised society needs to thrive, in the 21st century. Our aim is to develop the innovative means that support designers in their practice. At the same time, we support the exchange of best practices to improve the routine design and conduct research to develop and maintain solid theoretical foundations of design.
