Designing designers | From products to teaching
Kuno Prey – first a designer, then a professor, founder of the Faculty of Design and Art at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano – is convinced that only those who gain first-hand experience of design will be able to pass on their skills to younger people. This book recounts his journey via a series of student projects, as well as exhibitions, competitions, objects that he designed himself and contributions from international players in the design world. Designing Designers explores a new territory, halfway between a design manual and a coming-of-age “novel”: the initial part consisting of “stories”, written by Kuno Prey and Beppe Finessi, is followed by eight chapters, each one dedicated to a different activity or a specific practice that Kuno was involved in.
