Lecture at the Fashion & Luxury Summer School in Lugano, Switzerland

Last Thursday I had the pleasure to speak about [ digimorphé ] and the advantages of digital and parametric design combined with digital fabrication technologies at the Fashion & Luxury Sustainability Summer School, an international program run by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) and the University of Applied Sciences of Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW - School of Business). The program was open to Swiss and international students and professionals for learning about cutting-edge research and management best practices towards a sustainable industry future. My case study, together with the ones presented by the other lecturers Davide Fornari, Serena Cangiano, Zoe Romano and Amanda Montanari, showed the disruptive potential of new models for production, distribution and selling within an ecosystem where open code, collaboration and bottom up innovation are becoming widespread.
