A dose of optimism and inspiration: Design Indaba quarantine playlist
Let’s look at the current limitations on social life from a positive viewpoint: we can use the extra time we currently have on our hands to educate and inform ourselves about design from the comfort of our own home – through podcasts, films and videos. The design conference Design Indaba, which has been held in Cape Town, South Africa for 25 years, has become an important international event. The organisers have created a Quarantine Playlist on YouTube for the community: Your dose of optimism and inspiration is a compilation of presentations from recent years. Among those who show us what they are creating and explain why they are doing it are John Pawson, Stefan Diez, Wini Maas, Sissel Tolaas, Bjarke Ingels, Paula Scher, Christoph Niemann, John Maeda, Studio Formafantasma, Naoto Fukasawa, Asif Khan, Snøhetta and Francis Keré, and more.
