3:00-5:00pm. The flexibility of digital design and manufacturing technologies allows us to reassess relationships between consumer, manufacturer and designer. 3D printing can offer bespoke solutions, industrially manufactured or simply printed at home. Consumer products can be tailored to an individual's need or desire.
For over a decade FutureFactories has been exploring business models that seek to engage the consumer in the creative process.
To what extent do we, as consumers, wish to shape the world around us and what tools do we need to facilitate this? Can the designer retain creative control as elements of design are ceded to the user and what are the implications this has for creative ownership, identity and brand?
First 15-20 minutes is for networking
