A panel discussion and workshop led by Mara Pezzotta engaging with controversial themes around design related to food, sexuality and death.


From periods and sex toys to burial alternatives, controversial design allows us to break down taboos around sex, food and death. Join us for a panel talk led by Mara Pezzotta & Gianni Arduini (Pinximonio, vibrator as home décor) with Roxanne Brennen (DiningToys for sensual eating), and Anna Citelli & Raoul Bretzel (Capsula Mundi, funeral urn redesign). This is followed by an interactive workshop session with speakers for participants to develop their own controversial designs, with 12 design briefs around food, sexuality and death. Open to all regardless of experience!
