This Research Exhibition Catalogue includes research outputs displayed in the exhibition in London 2017 and Athens 2019. Moreover, this publication features a critical essay, as a reflection of the projects included in the exhibition and brief description of each project. A selection of the exhibition thematics outputs: Comercial-driven, Humanfacing and Community-challenging. The outputs from various research centres and organisations (including FABRICA-IT, AIGA-USA, TEI-GR) are carefully listed in the publication and accompanied with a research description. The exhibition was professionally documented and archived for research purposes in both online space but in London Design Festival archive site, for easy access. The research is based on speculation concerning, what is enabled when designers design with, and for others? How our design processes will amplify, diversify, and mobilise this under-investigated aspect of practice and discourse; where design acts inclusively regardless of disability, gender, ethnicity, vulnerability, language or age. The research element of the exhibition investigated how inclusive design thinking is used in current innovation processes, Dr. Maragiannis assessed the effectiveness of the outcomes, which included diverse and inclusive design and arranged them in three themes: Comercial-driven, Human-facing and Community-challenging, and sought to exhibit conceptual design proposals where the narrative and ideas were as important as the designs. This research is currently an important asset for the EYES EU Funded project as the outputs of the research are essential for a series of interdisciplinary and multicultural co-design workshops.
