Filmvisning: Beyond the Object


  • STPLN 3 Stapelbäddsgatan Malmö, Skåne län, 211 19 Sweden (map)

Beyond the Object is an investigation, a reflection in the form of a movie regarding the world of design. The movie tries to explore and understand which role design plays in everyday life, and also what it holds for us in the future.

Primary focus lies on the visionary aspect, but also the critical aspect of an over designed society. The producers hope that the movie can open up for discussion, and also work as a inspirational tool, both for design students and the design interested public in general.

The film is in English.

Beyond the Object är en undersökning, en reflektion i form av en film om designvärlden. Filmen försöker utforska och förstå vilken roll design spelar i vardagen, och också vad det innebär för oss i framtiden.

Fokus ligger på den visionära aspekten, men också den kritiska aspekten av ett överdesignat samhälle. Producenterna hoppas att filmen kan öppna upp för diskussion, och även fungera som ett inspirerande verktyg, både för designstudenter och den designintresserade i allmänhet.

Filmen är på engelska.
