The opening of the exhibition Desigñ at Instituto Cervantes Dublin is the context behind this intercultural dialogue about the new trends of Spanish and Irish design, under the common statement that sustainability of all products starts on design.
The participant on the Spanish side is Carolina Blázquez, Creative Director of ECOALF, a company designing urban-outdoor apparel, footwear, luggage and other articles with a focus on innovation and sustainability. Some of ECOALF’s products are represented in the exhibition Desigñ.
On the Irish side we’ll have Kate Cronin, the creative force of Klickity, an Irish company devoted to quality design and the protection of the environment. She is also involved in Remake, a network of Irish designers working with recycled materials.
After the discussion we’ll open a question-and-answer session to share ideas on the aspirations of design and the possibilities of waste materials.
