“Intelligence is not a fixed lump of something that is in our heads. It’s a transaction – a fluid interaction among our brains, bodies, our spaces and our relationships."-  Elliot Aronson

EMBODIED DESIGN aims to enhance the experience of creative work, including design thinking contexts, by facilitating awareness of the body-mind intelligence. 

 

These techniques and practices ensure a focus on the deeply human nature of collaboration. 

Your Body Knows

While the "learn-by-doing" mantra is widely praised in innovation, it often sidelines the power of physical engagement. Current methods involving activities like talking or standing only, miss out on harnessing our innate embodied intelligence. This limitation constrains our viewpoints and insights.

Embodied Design is a perspective that acknowledges the pivotal role that our bodies play in every aspect of creative work. How we move, our body language, and even our metaphors shape our thinking and communication. By weaving physicality and theater techniques into the design process, Embodied Design not only deepens understanding but also fuels innovation.

Our universal embodied nature unites people beyond cultural and economic boundaries. We all experience the world through living bodies, fostering a unique connection and empathy.

 

Infusing physical intelligence into design opens doors to superior collaboration and a brighter future. These fresh perspectives enrich design thinking and other human-centred approaches to innovation (including life-centred), many crucial for tackling today's intricate challenges.

*Services include design thinking facilitation, creative embodiment workshops and coaching, applied theatre activations.*
