“Design is not a profession, it is an attitude. It is the most productive organization of materials and processes, in a harmonious balance of all the elements required for a particular function. It is the integration of technological, social and economic requirements, biological necessities and the psychological effects of material, shape, color, volume and space. Thinking in relationships.” László Moholy-Nagy
Multi-layered and different aspects flow into the decision-making processes of a substantial product design.
So that an idea can be turned into a product with a high practical value, the suitable material uses, the technological possibilities, the functional and ergonomic properties are explored and finally questioned what happens to the planned product after its life cycle is examined.
Process steps are essentially concept, development and implementation.
In the conception phase, free associations and thoughts play the main role. essentially it is about approaches to problem-solving. different methods for finding ideas are used here.
Well-known solutions and familiar processes are questioned, alternatives are considered.
The development transfers the approaches to more or less concrete forms, the first geometries are created. flow e.g. ergonomic, technical and aesthetic parameters. Materials are considered, manufacturing processes are considered.
In the implementation, the detailed processing of the draft takes place with the aim of conveying specifications to the manufacturers that are not technically feasible or economically viable.
Hand sketches and 3D software are used. Visualizations can be created to get realistic ideas about the products. Drafts can be converted into models in our own model making workshop as well as with the 3D printer.
Technical drawings and data sets give the production companies precise information.
