ITALIAN DESIGN DAY 2021: "Quality design is sustainable" by Simona Bordone, Ambassador of Design




Design is sustainable when it respects not only resources but also the work and intelligence of those who made any product. Sustainability means quality and durability - so planned obsolescence should be abolished - but also the possibility of disposal and reuse of materials. We are still suffocating the planet and the people who live on discarded materials in the countries where we send them. We should all buy less and better by choosing products made from materials that can be decoupled and broken down so that nothing goes to waste. Responsibility for sustainability is not an individual responsibility, it is a process that only bears fruit if it belongs to the whole of society, regulated by strict rules. This is a profound cultural change, which is partly under way, and which must involve the entire product chain in all fields.
