VIA Design, one of the largest schools for Design & Business in Scandinavia, holds an annual exhibit showing a new body of work every year. This year, the exhibit was named Remedy Rush, and focused on featuring design that improves one’s quality of life. It highlights the ability of design to make everyday life just a little bit easier. They like to call it “design that improves life”. Each piece is an aesthetically pleasing object for the home, while also serving a higher purpose to make life easier for the user.
