The workshop focused on language-related issues and phenomena which have an impact on society in a medium to long-term perspective, and intends to envision future scenarios based on the crossing of innovative emerging technologies with socio-cultural, geo-political, and strategic considerations. Students were asked to observe and question contemporary phenomena related to Languages with a curious and critical attitude. The objectives of the workshop were to analyze scenarios related to the Language and to create a design concept. The Product Design students had to focus on a “thing”, while the Interior & Living Design students had to focus on a “space”. The result had to anticipate the future while addressing relevant contemporary issues related to Language.
