As part of the “Speculative Needs XOXO” exhibition at Beirut Design Week, 150+ Lebanese design and architecture students have presented artistic creations that address future human needs springing up thanks to anti-social technological developments. While the concept seems heavy, the approaches taken by many of the young creatives are playful, colorful and clever. From goggles called “Face Brace” which aid users in re-learning how to make eye contact to “The FOMO* Breather” which lets users know about social events occurring nearby, the creations are funny and tinged with pathos.
