Good Things Fest

Monday, 7th Dec 2020


This year’s Interaction Design Programme participants were invited to submit projects to the Good Things Fest.

This is part of Things.con (a global initiative to explore and promote the development of fair, responsible, and human-centric technologies for the IoT and beyond).

The virtual event will run from 7-11th December, and also includes a Talent Tuesday where among other great work, you will have the chance to see the Internet of Plants project by CIID IDP participants Mohit Choudhary, Nitin Surendran & Sachin Jose(pictured below).

Life-Centered Design Series

Thursday, 26th Nov 2020


It is our pleasure to invite you to the ‘Life-Centred Design’ dialogue series.

Monday, 30 November
0900hrs (CST – Central America) / 1600hrs (CET – Copenhagen)

Register here!

In 2020, CIID has embarked on a journey collectively with our students, teachers, alumni and extended network to apply a cross-disciplinary approach to design in harmony with nature. With CIID’s move to Costa Rica we have an incredible opportunity to start the dialogue with local experts from various domains.

We aim to feature inspiring panel discussions and talks where we ask ourselves – how might we encompass not just people, but also the environment we live in and the other organisms with which we share it?

Our first installment of our CIID Life Centered Design dialogue will be an hour-long virtual event with three guest speakers from Costa Rica who play an active role in shaping visions of life-centred urban environments, namely:

Irene Garcia Brenes – Advisor to the Mayor of Curridabat Municipality, Sweet City Project
Federico Cartin – Fundador & Director General, Rutas Naturbanas
Camille Garnier – Ecological buildings and biocities

We look forward to seeing you on zoom!

Final Exhibition 2017

Sunday, 19th Nov 2017


Opening Party: December 8th, 3-8pm
Exhibition Continues: Saturday 9th, 12-6pm.
Where: CIID, Toldbodgade 37b, Copenhagen K, 1253

This year’s Final Exhibition will showcase a wide range of design solutions through an impressive collection of tangible and visual prototypes. Our Interaction Design Programme students have followed an intense curriculum and the Final Exhibition sets out to reflect their new found knowledge and skill-sets.

The 23 final projects will demonstrate the multi-disciplinary, exploratory and potentially disruptive nature of Interaction Design and Service Design. We hope that the projects won’t stop at this exhibition and that people will continue to develop their concepts into actual products and services that will impact positively on the lives of those they are designed for.
