A new dawn

As interaction designers, we have begun to design almost anything for anywhere. We are working in an era with ever-evolving contexts and boundaries. The results have far-reaching impact, unexpected benefits, and consequences. We will explore the meaning and evolution of interaction design by understanding the brightest minds not just in design, but also in mathematics, philosophy, psychology or even industry.

​ Milan’s unique characteristics are the brain child of Leonardo Da Vinci, the greatest “super genius” of his time, and perhaps all time. He designed and planned the city’s network of canals and layout. We take inspiration from his multi-disciplinary approach in the world capital of (physical) product design to explore interaction design through the eyes of other disciplines.

Ciao da Milano!

Join us in Milan, recently crowned with the 2019 Design Award for Best City, by Wallpaper* magazine, citing an “exciting renaissance”. This ancient, sophisticated city is often described as the world capital for fashion and [furniture] design, but Northern Italy also played a key role in the advancement of interaction design. In 2003 Arduino was invented in nearby Ivrea, at the Interaction Design Institute, which later merged with Domus Academy, our education partner for the 2020 conference.

As Italy’s industrial and business center, Milan has many world-class attractions, from ancient ruins to cutting edge institutions. With the sartorially sophisticated locals, renowned restaurants, modernist architecture, and opulent museums and galleries, Milan is a surprisingly cool city.
