As robots, drones, and virtual reality enter our smart homes, technology has gradually built within us a second nature, an artificial one. But how natural can an artificial, technologised world be? To answer this philosophical question, the Red Dot Design Museum showcases over 150 pieces of Red Dot Award-winning technology products in an exhibition that demonstrates how well-designed technology has become a “new, second nature” to modern human beings, such that our daily life and global society can no longer survive without it. The solution to the problem is not less technology, but rather, better design to develop smarter technology.
