Which means…. the word “slowness” is no longer pejorative
There is no true science, or laws, or regulations to be followed. What exist instead is a philosophy and ethics in the way of doing things and unwritten guidelines that express the respect among design, environment and people.
We would like to share our little contribution with you:
1. Designing to create experiences. Slow design wishes to be much more than static, purely decorative objects and gives priority to interaction and experimentation.
2. Durability versus ephimeral products. Slow design is aimed to design objects that persist in time and culture, and in the minds and emotions of its users.
3. Slow design has a main responsability with the environment: to cure its wounds. How? Through the use of renewable energies and of recycled and recyclable materials. In short, avoiding toxicities and reducing the ecological footprint.
4. I live, therefore I sell. People are the base of slow design, which is created to satisfy real needs. Market comes after.
6. Education in design is key to achieve an essential process: the democratization of design. Creating awareness and educating so that everyone can take part in the process of slow design.
