When Design is strategically integrated within companies, it significantly contributes to generating innovative ideas and transforming them into marketable, intuitive and attrac- tive products, services, processes and systems. Design can be transversally applied within an organization, and represents an effective driver of user-centre innovation. Investing in Design leads to the creation of added value and strongly contributes to building sustainable competitive advantage. Illustrating how Design should be considered as an integral part of the overall business strategy is the content of Paul Flowers’ conference.

Paul Flowers is Vice President of Design for Grohe and winner of the “40 under 40® award” and the “red dot design award” in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009. The red dot award is one of the most prestigious design competitions in the world and the newest prize 40 under 40® is an annual award programme that celebrates the newest new talented generation of European designers. The programme is aimed at supporting new and emerging design talents which are likely to influence thinking and theory of the European Design’s nearest future.

Paul Flowers began his international career working for various prestigious London-based design studios, moving on to design for some of the largest corporations worldwide like IBM (UK), Electrolux (IT), and Philips (NL). In November 2005, Paul was invited to join Grohe (DE) as head of the design department. Producing inspirational design concepts with his talented in-house team of 13 designers, his activities have rewarded Grohe with a number of prestigious design awards. (iF and Red Dot). As the world’s leading single-brand manu- facturer and supplier of sanitary fittings, GROHE is already renowned for its technological expertise and quality standards.

presents

NICOLA DELON conference


Wednesday _ 12th of May

About Nicola, an architect ”encore heureux”


Nicola Delon is one of the architects which contributed, in 2001, to the creation of the architects’ collective «Encore heureux», actually based in Paris, together with Julien Choppin. The two architects started producing ephemeral installations for festivals, by integrating small budgets and big constraints. In 2009, they won the competition for the construction of the municipal museum for the city of Suresnes, participated in the «Ordos 100» project – an experimental housing estate in Inner Mongolia – and were invited by the National Art Museum of China to create a prototype for emergency housing.

Participating Nicola Delon’s conference means first of all entering the world of an architect and his team, but also the one of a man made of dreams and utopias for the future. Nicola will be there to provide us a complete feed back of his work based, at present, on the problem of urban space and emergency housing. Two topics of a great interest for the community, don’t miss it!

LISE COIRIER & HUMAN CITIES

Graduated in Art History and Management.

Nowadays she’s one of the commissioners that generated the important project HUMAN CITIES FESTIVAL (www.humancities.eu). This Friday she will present it with a conference whose aim is to highlight one of the targets of this initiative: ”celebrating public space and design in the city”. A mission which has been definitely shared by MUDAM as well as by the City of Luxembourg, even if the core city of the european event is Bruxelles, as it is identical the need to promote an active and participative approach of both citizenship, creators and public authorities to a ”creative” administration of public urban spaces. Objective which has been encouraged and pushed forward through the DESIGN CITY initiative.
