New models for Design and Consumerism in the Postindustrial Era
Inside 3D printing Conference, Seoul, Korea 22/06/2016 – 23/06/2016 Presentation entitled:- New models for Design and Consumerism in the Postindustrial Era Through a series of case studies this presentation will illustrate new approaches to design, manufacturing, and consumerism enabled by digital design and manufacturing technologies. It will focus not on the production technologies themselves but on the creative opportunities they afford. The freedom and flexibility of Additive Manufacturing (AM) offers not only complex geometries; it allows a reassessment and reinvention of relationships between designer, manufacturer and consumer. The designer can explore new ways of working, the manufacturer can respond to niche markets, and the consumer can become engaged in the creative process. Digital manufacturing is a revolution that is blurring traditional boundaries between art, design and craft. The freedoms of this technology demand not only intriguing designs but creative approaches to business in general.
