Redesigning design, remaking making
Well, maybe it isn’t all made in China any more. Or soon won’t be. A powerful international group of designers, manufacturers and the creative director of Britain’s best known design-led retailer introduce and explore the new context in which things are designed and made. The possibilities of rapid manufacturing, consumer engagement in the process, the significance of craft and the designer’s perennial quest for control of a process he or she may not well understand are all thrown wide open.
