Institute of Design
(Magnus Kjeldsen og Rudolf Stefanich: Connected Bus-stops)
The Institute of Design has a broad approach to design that emphasises the relevance and importance of design within contemporary society. We aim to educate designers with a solid knowledge of their specific professional field while emphasising a broadly integrated, cross-disciplinary approach to design processes using design thinking and design making.
The Institute of Design reflects the rapidly emerging fields of design that respond to societal challenges, new technologies and increased complexity. It promotes design that actively shapes our society, industry, organisations and daily life. Moving beyond its traditional role, design is established as a tool with which to address a wide range of issues from strategy to social change. While historically the Institute focused on Industrial Design, today its scope also includes Interaction Design, Service Design and Systems Oriented Design.
