Innovations for working & learning spaces of the future





How will the innovations of today shape the world of tomorrow? KI proudly showcases selected works by graduates of the RCA/Imperial College London’s Innovation Design Engineering double masters course. Their ingenuity gives us a fascinating insight into the future of our working & learning spaces.

Recent graduates from the RCA/Imperial College’s Innovation Design Engineering double masters course will once again take centre stage at KI during this year’s London Design Festival. Following last year’s successful exhibition, a selection of final projects will explore how innovation can transform our working and learning spaces in the future.

Winner of this year’s KI Award, Pratik Ghosh’s ‘Drop by Drop’, a natural plant-based water filtration system, will be on display alongside a number of other outstanding award entrants who displayed remarkable ingenuity, showing how design and engineering can improve our lives.

Other student projects featured include highly commended prize winners Daljinder Sanghera, Maya Pindeus and Ahreum Jung. Their works address issues as wide ranging as real-time, remote problem solving and collaboration, to enhancing our mental wellbeing.
