Design-driven innovation

Excellence in craftmanship across design practice and research

About us

Vianet uses design as a means to define, drive, implement and support innovation processes.
Vianet focuses on two main areas – design practice and research activities – through the following processes:

  • Set up of iterative design loops in order to foster and drive both technology-push innovation and meaning-driven innovation
  • Engagement of end-users and relevant stakeholders in the design process (co-design, participatory design, emergent design, design for use before use)
  • Piloting infrastructures to test social, cultural, economic implications of innovation ideas put in contexts

Vianet is headquartered in Rome (Italy) and has a commercial hub in Malmö (Sweden).
