Fragile Innovation suggests a reading of Greek modernisation from a design history perspective. By focusing on selected examples from the 19th century until today, the book discusses the difficulties and controversies surrounding local design development and illustrates the "incomplete project" of Greek industrial design. The book concludes by highlighting the fact that design in the global, post-industrial, digital society is undergoing a transformation towards new directions, of which the re-emergence of crafts and the rise of service design are notable examples. Design has now moved far beyond aesthetics and the drafting of national design strategies may be crucial for the future. Here lies a great chance to re-invent design in Greece and turn it into a vital tool for the future. What could the role of design be in renewing local economy and revitalising society?
