By Design

How can the design of a desk or lampshade change the way we work? Can we design a language that can be understood by every human on the planet? Should our democracies be redesigned to return back to their true purpose?

Our first Salon of the year, themed By Design, focuses on how the structural reconfiguration of big ideas can create an impact on our lives on every scale. It aims to provide a platform for a special calibre of global movers and shakers, those who are deconstructing big issues and the intricacies of the world’s grand blueprint - until their proactivity creates remarkable change. By Design is an exploration of inspiration, purpose, and ingenuity.
