16th-22nd September 2016
Which issues do we have to confront in design today? What paths can we open through new technologies, new design approaches, new ways of relating ideas, and new ways of production?
The Shaping Thoughts exhibition shows five projects that investigate five different directions in the contemporary design field. Relations, emotions, ethics, biology and political topics become the investigation that will lead the public through an interactive table to discover the new frontiers of design.
Five international design studios discuss the complexity and vastness of contemporary design culture with Hacking Source. A redefinition of ideas and thoughts, not exempt from critics and complications, open up many questions.

Hacking Source is a side-project of Source, an annual exhibition that since 2012 selects and follows the work of Italian and international designers with the aim of helping them approaching production, marketing and sales. Source has grown to become a permanent project and offers education, services and professional consultation all the year round, in Florence and other Italian cities on the theme of design and self-production.
