rethinking methods and materials

This was a new course developed as part of the Design Futures program, students embraced the brief and produced some inspired outcomes. Working with skilled craftsman and furniture designer Mike Epworth, QCA 2nd year product design students explored the importance of collaboration, context, material scarcity and problem solving by using ‘found’ materials on campus and seeking a client to design a solution for. Please refer to the student video below for an example. Designers: Sarah Capon, Chelsea Bateman and Nelson Vermeer.
