This new edition of Operæ wants to propose a more open reading of design: design that breaks barriers, and blurs the boundaries between disciplines; design that claims unapologetically its place as a bridge between the arts and the sciences. We want to be a platform for designers that make bold statements, objects that have the potential of becoming ambassadors of our time, projects that have the strength of redefining contemporary aesthetics.

WHY DESIGN wants to bring attention to design that, while still fulfilling a task, is a powerful expression of contemporary values, with a strong conceptual message and inherent beauty. Design has acquired an important semantic role: that of a lens through which to read our society. This is WHY we think, need, make, produce, support, own, collect DESIGN.
