This article from Fast Company is interesting because it looks at how drastically ideas around designing for older people have changed over the last 30 years. An exhibition highlighted in the article, looks at a series of projects from top design studios to address the issues of identity, mobility, community, working, and living.
An excellent question posed in the article: “The question is how will we live these longer lives? Will they be years full of life, or just life full of years?”
Nobody wants the latter.
It will be interesting to see what ideas and solutions companies come up with to help people live longer and more fulfilling lives.
