CUO > Mission statement
CUO | Social Spaces strongly believes in participation, in the research and design process as well as in society, leading to social inclusion. While we also put a broader focus on social interaction, in our view this is not about making society more high-tech. Instead it is about making technology more social. At the same time, we aim at stimulating sustainability, not only by using sustainable materials but also by supporting long-lasting meaningful interactions. The open design process that we use to reach these goals does not stop when a designer delivers, it provides a design that the user can make and remake. Throughout all our projects, we question current research and design practices by experimenting with materials and methods to generate novel insights.
