Hot Air Club: Automation and its social challenges

Image source

On the 4th of October 2013 The Basic Income Initiative of Switzerland submitted 126,000 signatures in favour of their initiative to trigger a referendum. Supporters celebrated by dumping eight million five-cent coins outside the parliament building, one for every Swiss citizen.

Each month, Seymourpowell hosts a Hot Air club where we openly discuss current topics and issues that affect and influence our work and the world. In the last forum, we discussed the effects of automation on society and what it means to our lives. The question arose; how will humans make a living in a world where robots do physical labour and computers do mental tasks?

One approach that was discussed at length was the idea of an unconditional basic income (UBI).

Walking through the Barbican’s ‘Digital Revolution’ exhibition, I was overwhelmed with a sensorial and memorable experience, topped off by a sense of optimism for the future of the digital medium. My experience was like stepping into a digital fantasy land that provoked all of my senses and left me enthused by the potential for more… more of this technological and digital acumen!

I’ll stop rambling now and get to the details but, as you can tell, I had a positive experience and would recommend that you attend and discover the rise of digital creativity across the arts, spanning three rooms of film, music, interaction, games and art.

Emerging Trend: The Conscious Consumer

Image source

There is a Swedish word that has been on the tip of our collective tongue here at Seymourpowell for quite some time now. It is a word that describes a philosophy of life that pervades Swedish culture; a word which, we believe, could be a powerful design term if manifested effectively in consumers lifestyles. That word is Lagom – the Swedes idea of achieving a balance between what we want and what we need – life in moderation.

At Seymourpowell we regularly monitor emerging consumer groups. In recent months we have noted a rise of the Lagom – a considerate consumer looking for a simpler way of life with just enough. As stuffocation reaches a saturation point, people are looking for ways to rationalise. Pairing back becomes the new priority, they are looking for ways to simplify and reduce on all levels.
