Interaction is the annual interaction design conference built around a global community.

"Form must have a content, and that content must be linked with nature.” Extend this to human experience, and Alvar Aalto’s famous saying perfectly describes the ethos of interaction design in 2016 and beyond.


The craft of design is in an exciting place right now. Designers have finally earned their seat in the corner office, but at the same time the dynamic within the industry is changing rapidly and constantly. Modern computing is taking design to places which we didn’t dare to dream about before, and is entering new, exciting fields such as robotics and nanotechnology.

The big question we intend to raise is what’s next in design, for professionals, consultants, studios and enterprises alike. The futures of interaction design, and design practice as a whole. To provoke, inspire and accommodate this theme, we’ve prepared, together with established Finnish filmmakers, a short film about the role of craft in the modern society.
