DESIGN FOR THE FUTURE
How to design to bring about effective and sustainable solutions? Material, technology, methods of manufacture, distribution or use in practice – all this affects the impact of the design work on environmental, social and economic situations of the user, companies or public space.
Norway is a country where sustainability runs through most projects. One of the reasons for this, is the attention focused on research in this field and training towards sustainable solutions in schools of applied arts. The Future of Design invites professors of the Department of Product Design from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, to Prague for a lecture on design and sustainability at UMPRUM, and a practical workshop will on this topic will run alongside.
