As a supporter of the environmental cause, I questioned myself how we, as designers, can impact on nature. History shows with the Industrial Revolution that developing new interactions and habits can create unexpected effects. I believe that it is our role to design within a sustainable process, whether it’s a connected pillow or a pizza delivery app.
When the COP21 event was announced to be held in Paris at the end of 2015, the media was urged to regularly cover topics and issus related to the environment. People who were not usually interested in the subject, started to wonder. I saw an opportunity to raise awareness about the fact that the technologies we daily have hidden repercussions. It was also an opportunity for me to address the problem from a designer point of view, to put my skills defending a great cause.
