We always like to invest time and energy in the academic world keeping a strong link with Design schools and Univerities young vibes.
The aim is either to keep up researching and to give back what we learnt over the years, continuously looking at new creative experiments.
By promoting workshops, talks and lectures we also manage to create a real opportunity for the students to meet brands and design firms.
