Ghost Project is an international platform for talents in the area of design concepts and product design. Starting as a small local exhibition of unexecuted projects in 2006, Ghost Project has grown to one of the largest regional reviews of design talents from around the world, enhancing the exchange between designers from different cultural backgrounds and giving unique insight into upcoming generation of designers who will be shaping our future. The Ghost Project’s slogan for the year 2017 is “THE NEW NOMADS”.
Everyday commuting and transportation, intense tourist influx to global destinations, massive ecological, economic and war-instigated displacements of people across the entire continent are becoming inevitable challenges of our times. At the same time, mobility remains the ultimate ideal of creative people’s freedom and independence, inspiring visions of objects, spaces, services and technological solutions that support nomadic way of living.
Under the slogan “THE NEW NOMADS”, Ghost Project 2017 brings young designers’ visions on how design interventions can improve lives of people on the move and presents innovative design solutions for multifunctional domestic objects, mobile workplace units, learning tools on the move, portable street shelters, transformable public space furniture, adjustable environments, sustainable life concepts for the nomads of our times, balancing the eternal human need for freedom of movement with sense of belonging.
