How design can solve technology-related dilemmas: Milan impressed by Olivia Lee


It's surely one of the most popular collection at this year's Milan Design Week: we are talking about Athena, a collection of furniture and accessories designed by Olivia Lee that you can see in the following gallery:

Singaporean designer wanted to solve some of the problems created by the presence of new technologies in our homes, so she created products that would be "future-proof" by virtue of being analogue. They, consequently, wouldn't require software updates and could adapt to the variously sized future generations of device. "What I wanted to do was approach the idea of a smart home differently and to try to address the new rituals and the new normals of the digital lifestyle, but through a very analogue way," Lee told "Dezeen". "So all the furniture doesn't require any electronics."
