Atelier LUMA is a laboratory that charts the Mediterranean community of Arles, in the Camargue wetlands region, as a work site for design and production, and as a resource for creative ideas and collective intelligence. The initiative tests out new ways of making, thinking, and designing, and claims new roles and responsibilities for design in the 21st century. With the publication "Design as a Tool for Transition: The Atelier LUMA Approach", Atelier LUMA aims to kickstart conversations, change minds, and create richer and more abundant opportunities for collaboration.
Edited by Jan Boelen and Vera Sacchetti, with contributions by Michel Bauwens, Clemens Driessen, Elizabeth Lara, Bernard Picon and John Thackara, among others.
The book launch will be part of the conference “The Politics of Design” which is taking place on 10 April 2019, at the Triennale di Milano / Teatro dell’Arte from 2pm – 6pm and is organized by the Vitra Design Museum.
