Bit-N Music, by Noelia Martín

Elisava is present at the 9th BID (Ibero-American Design Biennial) Teaching and Design Meeting, one of the most important Ibero-American design events today.

The meeting includes talks by Elisava professor Luis Eslava and Elisava Alumni of the Degree in Design Ariadna Tunnah. Her project Olga, a rug that acts as an emotional refuge for communal spaces at home, will be exhibited in the student show together with Beyond Boundaries, a project that explores new languages of interaction that are more natural and intuitive for the body through tactile stimulation.

Finally, the 50 talents exhibition will showcase the projects Bit N music, a new way of experiencing music through an object that vibrates designed to be bitten; TRU01, a foldable stretcher that can be assembled in seconds and carried on the back; TRASHmaterial, a set of ideas and explorations in search of new materialities for clothing design; and Dayna Evo, the Elisava Racing Team’s electric rescue motorbike.

Public forum on design education

The event takes place both online and in person at Matadero Madrid’s Central de Diseño for three days, from 22 to 24 November. A space that acts as a public forum committed to presenting the entire spectrum of design education through exhibitions, conferences, talks, debates and much more. Its aim is to reflect and debate on the current panorama of the discipline and to detail new competencies for future design profiles, promoting Design for Life.

This initiative aims to serve as a platform and network for teachers, universities and educational centres, students and design professionals from all over Ibero-America. Organised by DIMAD, within the framework of the Ibero-American Design Biennial (BID), the event invites reflection and debate on training in the discipline of Design.
