HAVEN'T HEARD ABOUT FUTURE DESIGN YET?
Maintaining change in a balanced environment, in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological development and institutional change are in harmony and increase the current and future potential to meet human needs and aspirations, is one of the main challenges of our time.
In Bali, the Potato Head Beach Club, known as one of Seminyak's most popular chill-out locations for his multi-cultural blend of gastronomy, libations and entertainment which imbues music, art and fashion at the same time - is advancing sustainably in the mission of providing once in a lifetime experiences while doing good in the world.
From the 17th till the 23rd of May, PHBC - which counts with artistic installations made from ocean plastic and hosts Indonesia's first residue-free restaurant - will be the official tropical playground for local an international creatives, studios and avant-garde brands for taking one more step toward a better future.
Taking a remarkable initiative for a better world, PHBC has come up with the Future Design Week a week-long festival that will showcase a series of exhibitions, installations, talks and workshops, based on how design can be important as a vehicle for social change.
Highlights of the inaugural event's programme's line-up include London-based furniture and fashion designer Faye Toogood, IKEA's sustainable research lab SPACE10, as well as Potato Head's Creative Director Dan Mitchell.
The Future Design Week will also hold workshops with The Shelter Project, Max Lamb, BYO Living, Sustainism LAB, Green School Bali and Eco Mantra.
The event is free to attend and will hold an unmissable closing party where Louis Vuitton Art Director and Off-White Designer Virgil Abloh will star a special DJ set alongside skater-turned-designer Alex Olson.
Full of revolutionary, innovative and ground-breaking design, Future Design Week will embrace sustainable development. The Potato Head family wish to inspire and educate as many people as possible through their initiative, looking to make not only a statement but an actual difference when it comes to the environment and the way we approach the future.
