Without Limits is a Studio Arts College International (SACI) interdisciplinary design course developed in collaboration with Dainese’s D-Air Lab. It challenges students to rethink fashion while simultaneously integrating protective technologies for the aging population. Without Limits brings together theoretical and practical approaches through collective interdisciplinary problem-solving in a studio format with a human-centered approach to Design. Students are exposed to the research and development conducted by Dainese, and apply research, design and entrepreneurial thinking to develop their ideas towards the realization of protective clothing for the elderly.

This studio takes place at SACI in Florence with Dainese providing expert guidance throughout the semester. Thanks to a generous donation by the M.S. Worthington Foundation, SACI has created its own Creative Technology Lab, where Instructors and experts in the area of Fashion Design, Fiber, Industrial Design, Visual Design, and Interaction Design guide students through complex problem-solving and innovating.
