DESIGNWORLD – DESIGNING THE NEW WORLD

Design Museum’s Spring Exhibition from 27 January to 6 May 2012 in Helsinki




How will design respond to the challenges and needs of our changing world? How can the means of design be used to address the problems of society or to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of individuals?

Produced by Design Museum and curated by the museum’s debuty director Jukka Savolainen, Designworld – Designing the New World considers various areas of contemporary design and the significance of the design sector at the levels of society, ecology and the individual. The exhibition addresses current issues and proposed solutions with reference to international and Finnish design concepts, projects and products. Design Museum’s exhibition schedule for 2012 is part of official programme of World Design Capital Helsinki 2012.

Release of Disegno Magazine - a long interview about Mine Kafon project



Twice a year, Disegno releases a printed magazine. This biannual tome is dedicated to key events in architecture, design and fashion over the last six months. It is an essential read and flick for both laymen and professionals and gives a flavour of the current stylistic and intellectual preoccupations of architects, product and fashion designers.

MK2 @ DesignWorld Helsinki - Jan 27th \ May 6th 2012

On January 27th the Design Museum Helsinki opens “DesignWorld”, its first major exhibition for 2012.
A not unimportant fact given the Finnish Capital’s tenure as World Design Capital 2012.

And very much in keeping with the Helsinki 2012 Manifesto – if we can use such phrase, apologies if that’s going to far – DesignWorld asks how design can help, influence and improve man, society and the ways we interact with the world around us.

Featuring market products, prototypes and “concepts in development” DesignWorld looks at design in numerous contexts, such as sustainability, responsibility or safety.

DesignWorld at the Design Museum Helsinki runs until May 6th 2012. Finnish Design Unwrapped – A Deeper Look until Janury 29th

Design of the Year nomination

We are nominated for the Designs Of the Year 2012 by the Design Museum in London. It's really a great honor to be a part of this selection. It gives us more hope and trust to keep hard working on this project.

Here below you can see our latest test session with the Dutch Defense. We tested the antiland-mine ball with several explosions. It worked out pretty well. In the future are more tests planned to bring this project to the next level

Thanks
Massoud Hassani
