How the logic of sharing could change the way we design cultural system

How the logic of sharing could change the way we design cultural system.

The logic of sharing has taken a key role in designing innovative systems combining products, services, spaces and events. These are real "cultural systems" providing an inspiring vision and a set of values related to collaboration, openness, bottom-up initiative. Designers have been pioneers exploiting the logic of sharing, depicting a scenario characterised by co-designing, co-producing and co-performing, in the wider framework of the so-called Sharing Economy or Collaborative Consumption.

Three inspiring examples coming from different design areas are provided as an evidence of "sharing-power": the Maker's movement, the Temporary Sharing Labs in mega-events, the experience of Collaborative Services set up by ordinary people.
