What are you looking for?

Are you ready to push the boundaries of your creativity and showcase your design expertise? Domus Academy, one of the prestigious members of Cumulus Association, invites all Cumulus Member Institutions with their design students to develop proposals to participate in a new captivating project competition that, for the 2024 edition, revolves around the compelling theme of Simplexity in Design.

The competition will culminate in a 1-day conference and exhibition during Milan Design Week 2024, where projects from selected schools will have the opportunity to showcase prototypes and take part in a talk/presentation session.

This exceptional competition is tailored to explore the delicate balance between simplicity and complexity in design research and practice, where complex problems are often ingeniously solved through novel combinations of simple techniques.

Simplexity in Design, in essence, represents the art of crafting design solutions that draw upon a remarkably intricate analytical foundation yet are elegantly resolved and presented in a manner that is both simple and easily digestible. In our fast-evolving design landscape, the ability to create designs that effortlessly harmonise this duality is an invaluable skill.

Cumulus Member Institutions should send the Expression of Interest form to: [email protected] by 3rd November.
A Zoom webinar will be held on 18th October at 5.30pm CEST to share practical info and ask further questions. Registration required.
