Master in Product Design in partnership with Fabio Novembre – September 2019


The spread of virtual piazzas, digital platforms, longer working hours and growing physical distances undermine our use of the city and its public spaces.

Fabio Novembre has often looked at Design as a vector to bring back the focus on the city and the relations it stimulates. This approach is part of a broader, experimental tradition which finds its roots in the Radical Movement developed in Italy by people such as Ettore Sottsass, Adolfo Natalini, Andrea Branzi and Alessandro Mendini, the same movement that set the basis of Domus Academy in 1982.

The evergreen slogan “From the spoon to the town” was already an attempt for interlacing design with the urban environment. Squares, towers and streets become objects of everyday life, where people live and meet.


Starting from this reflection, candidates are asked to design a new product that fits the home environment and its relation with the user. The new object should strictly stimulate or generate unexpected behaviors.
