If the throw-away society is over, how do we design for longevity in products and services? Eternally Yours, a Dutch foundation, organised a round-the-clock, 24-hour event to look at this timely question. Eighty different projects, case studies and scenarios – all dealing with time in design – were presented. The event experimented with a range of formats and tempos – from one-minute films, and 100-word lectures, to slow-food dinners and leisurely fireside chats.
Doors of Perception, and The Long Now Foundation, supported the event by helping with speaker selection and publicity. A gorgeous book of the event, edited by Ed van Hinte, was published later.
