As unprecedented challenges arise for our planet and humanity, Design is imperative in finding solutions that enable us humans to co-exist in harmony with nature and the biosphere.
We must collectively move from a culture of "creating in the absence of limits" to "creating in a limited world".
We have reached a moment in human history where we must design for sustainability and the impact on society. If we want to shift individual and collective behavior toward sustainability, we first need to engage people with compelling reasons to do so — with meaningful, beautiful, emotional experiences.
Dassault Systèmes’ Design for Life program is part of the global effort to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Design Goals by Design.
As a member of the World Design Organization (WDO®), Dassault Systèmes is committed to working towards the Sustainable Design Goals by Design and helping our customers and partners to do as well.
Dassault Systèmes also pairs up with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the world's leading circular economy network. As a member, Dassault Systèmes is part of the network's collaborative efforts to drive systemic change and scale solutions globally.
5 challenges are directly affecting our quest for a more sustainable future.
The need for sustainability, science & generativity, growing complexity, ubiquity and inclusivity.
Experiential design is the new focus as we think of users first—about the human, the citizens, the patients.
How do we engage with product life management, with the full holistic experience from sourcing to use, all the way to destruction?
We need to be able to work with expertise, with knowledge, with teams that may be around the globe, in a virtual design space.
Science and design are the necessary partners to create advantages and deliver results that make life better.
If we have a design space for collaboration, it has to be an inclusive place, easily accessible, allowing the convergence of designers, scientists, engineers, researchers, public services, and people/citizens.
Design For Life is a content collaboration between Dezeen and Dassault Systèmes featuring talks and videos highlighting designers who are using technology and research to build a better world.
BOXXCRAFT uses the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on Cloud, including xGenerative Design, xDesign, xShape and 3D Markup, to create 3D virtual models from the knowledge and know-how of craftspeople with anytime, anywhere access.
Passionate and ambitious, French designer Patrick Jouin constantly investigates emerging technologies, as demonstrated by his 2004 series Solid (C1 & C2), the first collection of furniture printed in 3D.
This naturally led him to collaborate with the DESIGNStudio to explore what the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, topology optimisation and generative design could bring to his creative vision, and his practice as a designer.
The result of this experiment is the TAMU chair prototype, which questions folding, materials, weight, and illustrates how the designers’ practice will evolve in a renewed relationship to algorithms and Nature — opening the door to further explorations.
Newron is a start-up dedicated to developing an electric motorcycle for the 21st century, with a focus on a luxury experience.
The DESIGNStudio brought best-in-class design acumen and design methods to the process, with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, to help Newron shape and craft the product and intended user experience.
With this collaboration, Newron managed to bridge the gap between their technical vision and their brand values with a solid design process, thus definitely accelerating their road to market.
Czech-based startup Zuri plans to revolutionize the way people travel by making air transportation more accessible and efficient.
The company adopted Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud with the Reinvent the Sky industry solution experience to design and produce its VTOL aircraft, create a virtual experience twin and connect all stakeholders.
Electric vehicle innovator NIO needed to rollout an R&D platform to support its rapid global expansion.
The company chose the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its Electro Mobility Accelerator industry solution to bring together different disciplines in its development and manufacturing teams.
