Thanx for the great time in London ! Benedikt was one of the speaker at this year's London Design Festival. His lecture "Pushing The Needle: The Power of Speculative Design" was at Victoria and Albert Museum. Afterwards there was a panel discussion with Becky Miller, The UK Government Cabinet Office and Natalie Kane, Curator of Digital Design at V&A. This year speakers included also Kengo Kuma, Daniel Charny, Fernando de la Posse, Carolyn Niebling and Marlene Huissoud. Pushing the needle – the power of speculative design.
