Environmental systems as a combination of interior design, services, communication and technologies
Interior design is less and less reduced to the mere physical component of space and is instead increasingly projected towards an ‘environmental system’ made up of space, services, communication, and technology, capable of illustrating a multi-scalarity and trans-disciplinarity typical of a project devoted to innovation. This change of focus, from the prevalence of the interior physical component to the dominance of a polyvalent system, has generated a series of changes, including those affecting the project’s area, which shows a progressive rise of the informational-cognitive component where the control of the net of human interactions involved becomes extremely important.
The volume collects various design experiences carried out within heterogeneous research groups and talks about experiments in the design of spaces and services on a different dimensional scale and that have impacted different types of users.
Through the recounting of these experiments, the book highlights the close interconnections between the design of spaces, the creation of services, the application of communication systems, and the exploitation of technologies, allowing us to reveal the tensions and interactions that are unleashed depending on the prevalence of one or another design discipline and the scale (from XS to XL) at which they take place.
