Design Courses

On the design course we get acquainted with industrial design. The world of objects is approached from a new perspective. Different questions are explored; such as why do we need design, who designs the objects, how are they fabricated and what do you need to consider whilst designing objects.

The underlying theme is recycling and innovative reuse of materials.
