    Without Limits is an interdisciplinary design course developed in collaboration with Dainese's D-Air Lab and the MIT's Agelab. It challenges students to rethink fashion while simultaneously integrating protective technologies for the aging population. Without Limits brings together theoretical and practical approaches through collective interdisciplinary problem-solving in a studio format with a human-centered approach to Design. Students are exposed to the research and development conducted by Dainese and MIT's Agelab, and will apply research, design and entrepreneurial thinking to develop their ideas towards the realization of protective clothing for the elderly.
