PHASE3, Product Development for a Circular Economy

In the coming semester, as already announced at the end of the last semester, we want to deal with the subject of product development. From a classic point of view, product development is the process that stands between the design and the industrial implementation of an idea.

The conversion of the linear to a circular economy is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges of our generation: At the same time, designers today have an enormous (greater than ever) influence on how products are designed, where, with what and how they are manufactured, precisely because of a predominantly outsourced production become.

The aim of the PHASE3 semester project is first of all to develop one of your previous projects in such a way that it could exist in the context of a circular economy. The following projects are possible:

TURELL, lighting a table
JOINTS AND FITTINGS, details are not the details
TO GO, food packaging from production to preparation and consumption
WORK IN PROGRESS, how work affects life
GATHER, Cook, eat and drink in the context of shared living and work
As is well known, a selection of the semester projects 3-5 will be exhibited in Cologne at the beginning of next year. Therefore, I ask those of you who have proposed a project for participation in one of the two exhibitions to give priority. By the end of this week, please, DEADLINE FRIDAY 18.9.

It is expressly intended to use the winter semester for the completion of the exhibits!
