Pearl Academy, the premium design education institute in India and a member of Laureate International Universities is hosting a world café style international confluence “What’s Next: Impact of Design” to be held on 23 February 2017 in New Delhi, India.
Design is transforming the business, re-shaping management thinking, and fostering social innovation by questioning the ‘Why’ of a problem. Would Design have the capability to lead the change as it can conflate across all disciplines? Can design positively impact the world of tomorrow and its problems?” Would the role of the designer be that of a connectivist, who establishes and fosters links between different disciplines? The confluence will address these questions under following themes:
• Impact on society
• Impact on industry
• Designing education
• Design for nation building
As a part of this confluence, we have also rolled out the ‘CALL FOR IDEAS’ for design professionals, academicians and students. These competitions are:
– for students: ideas on “Impact of Design on Society and Culture”
– for Professionals/ academicians: design pitch on “Design for Nation Building”
Take part in the International Design Competition sponsored by PORADA ARREDI Srl and POLI.design, Consorzio del Politecnico di Milano, under the patronage of ADI, the Association for Industrial Design.
The new edition of the international competition this year choose to focus on different types of clothes hangers: original and innovative concept of coat hangers and wall-mounted and free-standing coat hooks, equipped or equippable.
Projects must be original, unpublished and aimed at enhancing the use of technology and production and finishing processes typically used for working with solid wood.

The 3rd place of Designers’ Nest contest in Copenhagen was given to Maija Mero from Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Finland. The jury was specially impressed by “the designer’s technical skills and high level of craftsmanship, and found that there was a fine balance of artistic and commercial interest.” Maija is influenced by different cultural mixes and she would love Beyonce to wear her cross-cultural collections.
The festival is taking place 14-18 September at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
NEU NOW is open to arts students in their final year of study and recent graduates (within one year of graduation) of Higher Arts Education Institutions across Europe and beyond, which are ELIA members, ELIA associate members or ELIA non-European members.
