Nicolas Nova

Nicolas Nova is an anthropologist, design researcher, and writer. With a multi-disciplinary background in social sciences, information technologies, design, and natural sciences, he divides his time between running international field-work projects, documenting new signals in the world, and making sense of them to inform and inspire design or strategy. Using ethnographic approaches, Nicolas investigates everyday cultures to tell stories, and employs design techniques to explore the implications of new technologies as well as environmental change. Professor at the Geneva University of Arts and  Design (HEAD–Genève, HES – SO), he is also co-founder of The Near Future Laboratory, a design fiction studio.
