DZigning the TimeLine: INclusive Design for the Elderly
'Dzigning the TimeLine: Inclusive Design for the Elderly' is a non-profit project that I initiated because of my passion for design and for inspired people. It saw nine young designers from Israel and Luxembourg develop innovative concepts to improve the living spaces of elderly people.
INclusive by DZIGN aims to promote the process of inclusive design which merges ergonomics and aesthetics to develop solutions within the design of a product that take into account the health, mobility or sensory fragility of its user. Through cooperative projects featuring young designers at home and abroad, INclusive by DZIGN helps generate social and cultural inclusion across generations by and whilst relieving societal challenges.
Patrizia’s reactivity and her capacity to adapt are two attributes that I highly appreciate in our professional cooperation. Patrizia is a real professional who loves what she’s doing. She works for the pleasure of implementing ideas and achieving goals- not to boost her own ego. This too is a great quality that I’d like to highlight.
