Design is the application of man’s intelligence and creativity to express his own needs. The complexity of today’s scenarios pushes the boundaries of the discipline towards others, such as social science or behavioural psychology, in order to better understand man’s basic attitude to his environment.

These multidisciplinary tools help design to establish a constant, closer dialogue with the user: a basis of construction and co-creation that will lead to core, fundamental changes in its environment and behaviour – the elegant solutions that make life easier, warmer, more beautiful, and enrich experience through the application of technology.
