MAU

Benji Bergmann, Jono Bergmann

CATALAN PREMIÈRE

SYNOPSIS

With charisma and intelligence, Mau reviews his life and career from a difficult childhood in a humble environment to his most well-known and ambitious projects: the publication with architect Rem Koolhaas, of the landmark book S, M, L, XL, the creation of Coca Cola’s global sustainability platform or the redesign of the social image and global idea of Guatemala are just a few examples. Educator, philosopher and great communicator, for Mau everything is design and design is everything. More importantly, everyone is a designer. This transformative and radical idea that design can be used to create positive change in our world and in our lives is Mau’s powerful message, convinced that “the bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity”. So, if you long for change in your life, what are you waiting for to design it?
