Belgium | The Limits to Growth! Sustainable design on exhibition at CID
By FEDERICA LUSIARDI - July 26, 2018
The exhibition “The Limits to Growth!” – on view at the CID, Centre d’innovation et du design in Belgium, from July 1 to October 21, 2018 – presents critical works by artists and designers which unveil, in some cases humorously, the flaws of the mass production system that dominates the society to which we all belong.
Products and prototypes on view all share a design approach focused on simple manufacturing, material recycling, local production, refusal of planned obsolescence, and new economic paradigms, thus demonstrating that it is possible to experiment production processes more environmental and resource friendly.
