How the Internet of Things Changes How We Design
Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino

Designing a connected product requires strategic thinking that design professionals have not had to develop in an industrial context. It disrupts not only entire industries but the way professionals are shaped for those industries. This lecture will discuss the process of developing and designing connected products and the sets of skills, semantics, and collaborative practices that are essential in this context.


Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino is a London based interaction designer, product designer and entrepreneur whose work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Founder of the Good Night Lamp, a family of internet-connected lamps, she has been focusing on consumer-facing internet of things products and services since 2005.
