The Most Important Design Item

If you were asked what design item was the most important to you, what would you say? Is it the coffee mug that keeps your hot brew warm on your way to work? Or is it the wireless device you're currently reading this article on? Whatever your answer may be, the fact is that no matter who you are design influences your life. This question and many more will be discussed in depth at Open Design, an 11-day conference that seeks to bring designers, creatives and the general public together to discuss the many roles design plays for us all. Running from 12 to 23 August at the City Hall in Cape Town, you can expect to be inspired and amazed by some of the city's more talented individuals, as well as take part in the discussion yourself.
