UXSG Conference 2016: “Transformation”

7 – 9 September 2016 - Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Center

 1 Raffles Boulevard, Suntec City – Singapore


Francesca & Hunn have been invited to be keynote speakers at UXSG 2016 Conference to present the studio’s insights and opinions on how Physical and Digital Experience Design can come together.

The keynote is entitled “Transformative Tangibles” which is accompanied by a workshop led by Francesca & Hunn, “Phygital: The Future of Seating”, to start and seed conversations between UX and Physical Design practitioners.

“UXSG Conference is a community initiative by and for UX professionals, to create a platform for stronger professional collaboration and foster cross-industry learning.

This year the key theme is “Transformation”: no matter what product or service you work on; whether in an agency, client organisation or startup; by yourself or with a team; the core of our design craft remains the same – to transform the world, little by little, to become a better place.

Join us at UXSG Conference 2016 as we explore the fundamental impact that design has on our everyday lives across four levels of Transformation: Society, Communities, Products & Services, Self.”

“Equilibrio” for White Flag

7 – 27 September 2016 - London Design Biennale

Somerset House – Strand, London – UK


If you are in London do come and view Francesca’s project “Equilibrio” designed on the occasion of the Triennale Design Museum installation “White Flag” curated by Silvana Annicchiarico and Giorgio Camuffo for the London Design Biennale 2016.

The exhibition runs for 20 days and 20 Italian designers have been chosen for it. Each one has been asked to design a white flag, filling it with symbols, signs and meaning to convey the value of a surrender, of a truce, a contemporary metaphor of utopia, according to the curators: not a form of construction, but rather an act of deconstruction.


Two utopias come together in this piece, conflicting but united and supported by the same structure. These white flags, which stare at each other in a tangible tension, represent the objectification of a moment when one is forced to suspend judgement.

When the truce is broken, an absence of flags means that instability returns to the two conflicting sides. A return to equilibrium can now only occur if there is real cooperation between the opposing parties, who need to seize the initiative and act together.

Equilibrio is a celebration of sharing, a dance in search of ethereality, harmony and cooperation. It is a hope for our tomorrow.
