IFA organisers commented: “Design plays an extremely important role in the development of products and technology. Can smart materials help save lives and intelligent building facades save heating costs? Can barrier-free product designs, sustainability and smart materials deliver on their promises?

“This session will examine the importance of design in connection with technology trends and developments in product design, industrial design, graphic design and communications design. One of the main topics of this discussion round is ‘Successful business models require design thinking – a clever combination of art, design and innovative technology’.”
