We kicked off the Driving the Human book tour during Milan Design Week! The book Driving the Human: Seven Prototypes for Eco-social Renewal was be presented at “The Beauty of Publishing” talk, hosted by Anton Rahlwes & Nina Sieverding, editors-in-chief of form magazine, and with guests Matteo Guarnaccia (designer, Institute for Postnatural Studies / Cthulhu Books), Barbara Glasner (creative consultant, form publishers) and Vera Sacchetti (design critic, curator, and program coordinator of Driving the Human).
All guests brought along a new publication. Barbara Glasner presented her book Most Touched about 1000 door handles, Vera Sacchetti talked about the process behind a new book documenting the Driving the Human initiative, and Matteo Guarnaccia shared his experiences about his work as an editorial designer for Cthulhu Books and present the freshly released book Making Kin. Furthermore, Nina Sieverding and Anton Rahlwes gave an insight view into the making of the first form International Issue. Together, the guests discussed the relevance and beauty of printed matter.
The talk was included in “A slow design week?” event at DOPO? that offered visitors, in the busiest week of the year, an environment where there was time for discussion, dialogue, exchange, and empathy.
