Airbnb, a popular short-term home rental service, is marking its 7th year with a shift to a new design to better communicate the ideas of sharing and belonging. The new design has been developed by the London-based company DesignStudio.
Airbnb—a community hospitality provider—has collaborated with four design studios—Studioilse, Jasper Morrison, Patternity, and Raw Edges—for smart contemporary house designs for the upcoming London Design Festival.
Airbnb is rolling out its first-ever global campaign, “Views,” to celebrate a plethora of travelling destinations across the globe.
The initiative is to inspire a positive shift in the community life by creating shareable, genuinely more comfortable and livable cities, supporting micro-entrepreneurs with relevant initiatives to make the municipal areas a brighter spot.
The new model of consumer relationship emerges at the intersection of online social networking, mobile technology and the social movement that comes as a response to the reduction in purchasing power.
Amongst other functions, Peers.org will protect the interests of the largest peer-to-peer service providers currently dominating the market, such as AirBnB, Lyft, Taskrabbit and Vayable.
Нow can design play its part in fostering a new kind of currency? A currency that’s more suited to the Hobson’s Choice generation. The generation that has little but believes in the principle of what goes around comes around.
