'Living and Working together' was an exhibition from November 25th 2007 to January 11th. It was organised within the context of Utrecht Manifest, a design biannual for Social Design. Some of the products or ideas can now be seen until May the 12th in the exhibition 'Design and the elastic mind' in the MOMA New York
Living and Working together showed about twenty inspirational graduation projects from international design courses. A growing social awareness is a characteristic of many young designers. The exhibition presented fresh concepts and products for the international society of the future, sometimes bluntly simplistic and sometimes highly detailed.
