Can designers create happiness? Is personal happiness a design problem? Is happiness the key to unlocking more sustainable design?
As part of this year’s designEX, a speaker series, 7 Kinds of Happiness, is using the theme of happiness as a lens for people to talk about what they do. Over seven physical and digital conversations, the answers to the above questions (and more) will be discussed.
Curated by the Office for Good Design, the program falls over three days (14-16 May) at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre and features Stefan Sagmeister, Studioilse’s Ilse Crawford, design critic Alice Rawsthorn and a handful of other top speakers (see full speaker list below).
