Description

Studio: The Future of Privacy

This interdisciplinary studio offered by the IKEA x UTS Future Living Lab explores the future of privacy in the home (and beyond) in the digital age.

Research tells us that privacy is linked to wellbeing and that a failure to realise personal privacy further increases stress levels. However, our desire and need for privacy are challenged by the reality of urban living, the complex roles we occupy in our private and professional lives and our close and constant interaction with digital technologies.

How can Interior Architecture and Product Design respond to these challenges creatively? How do we redefine privacy in the digital age? What is the future of privacy?

This elective will engage with IKEA to push the boundaries of innovation through researching and implementing new design approaches to address unique Australian needs of domestic life, linked to the future of privacy in the digital age. Students will be paired across the disciplines and develop projects that fuse object and spatial design to create artefacts that will be included in the exhibition and catalogue to close the studio. This elective engages with IKEA at a high level to push the boundaries of innovation through researching and implementing new design approaches to address unique Australian needs of domestic life, linked to atmospheric, multi-sensory and emotive design.

Students are paired across the disciplines and for two weeks develop individual projects that fuse object and spatial design to create artefacts that will be included in an exhibition and catalogue to close the studio.

The subject is suitable for highly motivated students who have the time to dedicate to this two-week elective and are interested in collaborating in an interdisciplinary manner with an industry partner to produce high-level work for exhibition and publication.
