Speculating about the future is fundamental to Central Saint Martins’ art and design practices.

Whether reinterpreting traditional craft, or harnessing emerging technology, we continually evaluate production models, material lifecycles and consumer culture. Through collaboration we help businesses, organisations and communities reframe constraints into opportunities that find a balance between people, planet and economy.
