SFU Italia Design – School of Interactive Arts + Technology (SIAT), Simon Fraser University — Surrey, Canada

Each year, a new team builds on the previous year’s research under the banner of “SFU Italia Design”, a documentary series profiling designers, studios and brands in Italy who are invited to speak about their work and experiences, and share their philosophies and stories around the subject of design. Well worth checking out.

Italia Design is an undergraduate field study and research programme offered by the School of Interactive Arts+Technology (SIAT) at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Its site is the legacy project of bi-annual research conducted in the areas of design and innovation, under the directorship of Russell Taylor, Senior Lecturer in Design at SIAT. Its most significant contribution to the field are interviews conducted with both emergent and established players in the Italian design community.
