Session type
Lightning Talk

Technical level


This is a lightning talk which would aim at revealing some of the most astonishing and amazing Sciences behind great designs which we encounter in our daily lives.


Design is a huge topic. Whatever we design or however we execute our work, there is a process related to each of it. This process is governed by Science. Yes! There is a lot of science involved in each and every design. This science initiates the design thinking process which results in the final subject at the end. Hence, the objective is to highlight the very Science behind all the good designs we see around us.

The talk would amaze you by the facts on how people use the simple basic concepts of science to make somethings that are great in design and to leave the world a better place. Special focus will be on some day-to-day elements we use but never give a thought upon why or how they have been designed this way.


Just an open mind and lots of curiosity.
