Design and complexity
The rise of internet of things seems to be just a playground for new technologies but it is an expanding space for interaction design.
Interconnectedness and intelligence are new dimensions to the physical world; these properties give environments and objects the power to learn, sense, act and behave; redefining the founding concepts of our perception of space. These qualities bring magic, surprise, affection but are as well extremely complex to understand, to prototype, to design towards;
Pierluigi is fascinated with complex systems and believes that, in order to unfold the possibilities of today’s technologies to craft a better living for tomorrow, there is an emerging need to understand and play with complexity.
Pierluigi is an interaction designer, founder of the research group Binary Futures, where he explores, designs and creates interactive environments and objects combining research and practice. He is actively involved in education with lectures in Politecnico of Torino, Strelka Institute in Moscow and CIID. Pierluigi is developing his own tools to teach connected ecosystems to designers, corporate professionals and architects.
Prior to Binary Futures, he worked in the creative industry and in the world wide design consultancy, Tellart, as videogame developer and technologist.
