The participants will develop the following skills:
The RADI Designers invite you to their workshop located at Campus MaNa for their first meeting in 25 years. Immerse yourself in their working methodology, engage in collective exchanges, combine or intersect different viewpoints, and dive into the mischievous spirit of the Radi Designers.
Participants will design objects and mobile furniture for outdoor use, leveraging the context and playing with the landscape, as well as the actions and behaviors of people who frequent the Campus.
The objective is to seek qualities that go beyond comfort and functional efficiency, adding an open dimension of pleasure that can encompass notions such as perspective, theatricality, and role-playing between the user and the "viewer" around the banquet, coworking space, meeting area, and more.
