ACT, FAIL, AND EXPLORE
In a turbulent world, where does the next generation of designers look for purpose? Do they dare try alternative ways of problem solving and creation in order to reach sustainable paths forward?
Actions, failures and explorations have all been embraced in this course, where students at Konstfack’s Industrial Design programme have been free to explore an inquiry of their choice. Prototyping has been at its core. What we see is their insights, concepts and proposals, materialised as physical models and artefacts. Although we cannot share their physical tactility, scents or weight, we try to bring you as close as possible.
Feel free to contact students if you have comments, questions or wish to know more.
