‘Decoding Design’ explores how preconceived ideas about culture affect our expectations. Yan Huang (the Chinese automotive designer), Manuel Canestrini (the German architect) and Ilan El (the Israeli industrial designer) interpret archetypical and traditional items of their fellow cultures in their own way. Each individual designer will investigate a cultural perception by creating a new interpretive object. ‘Decoding Design’ harnesses the effects of design to inform how preconceived cultural ideas can manifest through product design.
