His lecture is called The Hidden Stories of our Everyday Objects. All the objects that surround us have amazing stories of how they were designed and manufactured, the complex scenarios where they were imagined and mass produced. They often have shifted into our everyday context and even more, they now are embedded in our lives. Through this lecture we will review some of the icons of design by finding them in unusual environments, with pop culture references such as music videos, films and sitcoms.
