Dario Buzzini is a Design Director in IDEO’s New York office. His day-to-day job involves consulting and helping Fortune 500 clients to address complex challenges related to interaction design, from telecommunications and financial services to automotive and consumer electronics products. Over the past eight years, Dario has collaborated with multiple international companies, including Artemide, AT&T, Eli Lilly, Fiat, Ford, Motorola, Novartis, Philips, Prada, Tecno, and Telecom Italia.
Dario has a deep interest in physical grammar, formal language, design technology, and social interactions. As a product and interaction designer, he focuses on design speculations and what he calls “behavioral objects”: those that explore, challenge, or emphasize specific interactive modes or behaviors. As an educator, he has taught and lectured in various universities in Europe, including Politecnico di Milano and Interaction Design Institute Ivrea in Italy and Umea Institute of Design in Sweden.
Dario holds two master of science degrees: one in industrial design from the Politecnico di Milano and the other in interaction design from the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea.
