Service Design workshop at the Triennale in Milan, Italy

Daylight Munich was invited by Leftloft, one of Italy’s leading communication design agencies to host a 3 day service design workshop at La Triennale in Milan. The goal was to introduce the concept of service design - methods, tools and processes to an interdisciplinary group of around 25 students from various universities and design schools across Italy.

In groups, the students worked on the real-world challenge of reducing food waste. On the first day of the workshop, they interviewed shopkeepers, families, farmers and food producers. What followed was 3 intense days of great collaboration, idea generation and prototyping of concepts.

The teams presented the resulting design concepts on the final day - they included an ‘orphan food’ movement to celebrate close-to-expiry food at supermarkets, community food stations to share excess food within the community of tenants in apartment complexes and a ‘food tracker’ which helps plan your grocery shopping based on one’s consumption pattern.

Pascal later gave a talk about Design Thinking on the closing day which was attended by over 300 people from Milan’s design community.
