2023—Free Workshop, Designing a future life-centred product with speculative designers using non-human personas

As a guest workshop facilitator for Speculative Design Sydney, I introduced participants to life-centred thinking via a workshop set in 2030, where participants designed with AI, future tech, life-centred design, and a non-human persona to speculate a future life-centred version of an everyday product.

In four teams, we explored a future world that prioritises repairing and reusing over making new things by designing a future, life-centred mattress system, shifting it from being a ubiquitous product that uses a lot of resources and creates a lot of landfill to one that causes less harm and regenerates nature.

Take the lead

Lead the way by redesigning your products and business to reduce environmental and social harm and regenerate the people and environments your system relies on.

“The ideas really resonated with me as I’ve felt this growing unease with human centred design’s echo chamber”

“Super helpful tools for designers… I’ll be sharing them with the students.”

“An amazing book about the topic.”
