With a vision for human-oriented solutions, Vinaya explores human connectivity through philosophical inquiry and smart product design

Technology makes us more efficient, expands our social networks and feeds us more information, but at what cost? This November, a team of scientists, designers and engineers will begin working together to answer this question. Vinaya is a research lab and design studio that explores the relationship between humans and technology, and seeks out the balance that will lead us to happiness.

Along the way, Vinaya is pioneering a human-centric approach in product development. In a three-story building in Shoreditch, East London, a team of philosophers, anthropologists and neuroscientists will conduct extensive research on the human condition.
