Vera Sacchetti and Aric Chen

Online Monday

Talking from a distance between Basel and Shanghai, Vera Sacchetti (design critic and curator) and Aric Chen (curatorial director Design Miami) discuss the current state of the design world and the constraints imposed by the pandemic and the present moment. Together, they reflect on the digital turn, the progressive focus on local and regional realities, and a plural, decentered future for the discipline.
