The project MULTIFORM is an ongoing design research that questions and re-invents the social and political role of sport in contemporary society.By considering the body as a learning tool, the research investigates how we could teach inclusivity in the sports class and will result in the development of a new educational tool kit. Consisting of new uniforms, sport games and objects, the kit will offer innovation for discussion about diversity within education.

Beyond just deconstructing the artefact of the uniform itself, MULTIFORM aims to radically question the normative aspect of design that constantly shapes our daily social interaction and perception.


MULTIFORM is developed by Studio Fontana with the support of CityLab10, COC Rotterdam, The Commune design incubator, participatory test- secondary schools in Rotterdam and experts from the field of design, sport and education.
