With roots in techno-progressivism, SAMCARA explores the potential of technology, design-thinking, product design, and design as linguistics to advance communities. Our mandate is to research, discover, explore ways to communicate that transcend social, political, and cultural borders. Through collaboration and innovative production methods, our project also aims to create the design processes that seamlessly integrate circular design principles for a better and more sustainable culture.

Linguistics are the basis for much of the research, including the relationship of language to culture, design as a visual language, and expanding to form and motion as well. For example: fashion and style conveys massive amounts of information about people and places yet has very little academic research on the design process and trends.

 

SAMCARA means evolution and progress in Sanskrit.

SAMCARA“進化”や“前進”を意味するサンスクリット語です。

 

Research, discover, and explore new ways to communicate that transcend social, political, and cultural borders as well as the creation of design processes that seamlessly integrate circular design principles.

社会、政治、文化の垣根を超えたコミュニケーションの実現を目指して様々な研究、開発を行い、サーキュラーデザイン理論に代表されるデザイン手法用いて、継ぎ目ないデザインプロセスを創造します。

 

Projects will include: explorations of visual language and its impact on social issues, design for cultural evolution and fostering innovation, innovative “language instruction” design, the Bio Design Challenge, and product development for various corporate partners.
