World-leading visionary, innovator, designer, and author, Bruce Mau is committed to creative, healthy, ecological and economic abundance. Informed by 25 years of studio experience in design innovation and collaboration with some of the world’s leading artists, institutions and businesses, Bruce Mau has made a simple commitment to connect his life and work to education and human development.
Motivated by the certainty that the future demands a new breed of designer, Bruce Mau founded the Institute without Boundaries – an innovative, studio-based postgraduate and his students created the groundbreaking exhibition and best-selling book, “Massive Change” – a project that declared, “Massive Change is not about the world of design; it’s about the design of the world.”
Bruce Mau’s most recent book, “The Third Teacher” which he and his studio co-authored with OWP/P Architects and VS Furniture, presents a compendium of ways that design can transform teaching and learning for students, families and teachers to thrive in tomorrow’s world.
Mau is an author and designer of award-winning books, including “LifeStyle”, “S,M,L,XL” in collaboration with Rem Koolhaas, and the iconic and celebrated “ZONE BOOKS” series. Translated into several languages, Mau’s “Incomplete Manifesto for Growth” has been an inspiration with his aphoristic articulation of his personal philosophy and design strategies for unleashing creativity.
Mau seeks to prove that the power of design is boundless, and has the capacity to bring positive change on a global scale.
"A new world is evolving. It is driven by purpose and committed to sustainable human development. The new world inspires and demands a new approach. Our future is no longer about selling more stuff to more people – it’s and abundance." Bruce Mau’s purpose is to contribute the most that one possibly can to this
