The IDI supports our design research community by promoting innovation in practice.
Studies show Irish companies value design that innovates. Not only that, but the same companies value design that innovates more successfully. Design research means better, more integrated design thinking.
Individuals, organisations and countries across the world are competing with new design research to further close the gap between aspiration and ability.
Multi-disciplinary design review ITERATIONS supports discourse spanning the different areas of professional design, providing a platform for designers and researchers to engage with each other's work.
Current IDI Research
We collaborate with bodies researching the state of design. We are currently developing a White Paper on Irish Design, which should be available by 2020.
