What is DOES about?

Menu

DOES is a design and consultancy studio that explores the potentials of materials through research and experimentation. We act as creative directors in the ever-changing-material-world in which our bodies are constantly interacting. Our aim is to develop concepts that lie at the intersection between product and technology, fashion and textile design.

Previous clients and collaborators include, among others: Unicef, Ogilvy Public Relations, Domestic Data Streamers, Studio Banana, Eurecat Technology Centre or Materfad Materials Centre.

Previous exhibitions: Barcelona, Milan, Hong Kong, Paris and New York.

Creative Direction by Saúl Baeza. Saúl is Content Curator and Advisor for the Materfad Materials Centre and researcher at TU Eindhoven and ELISAVA Research. He is also curating for the Understanding Design Festival in Barcelona.

Saúl is a lecturer at ELISAVA School of Design, IED (Instituto Europeo di Design) and LCI-Barcelona.

WHAT DOES IT SAY?

"Projecting on the body allows you to understand the full range of movements, functions, languages and significances of our bodies capabilities. It turns you into a personally experienced human being and designer.

Playing between body, material and context has become my principal design methodology and approach to product, fashion, wearable and interaction design, allowing me to create disruptive scenarios, to break preconditioned barriers and to discuss established concepts."
