An evening with Design Products

Science & Technology

You are cordially invited to attend An Afternoon with Design Products.

Show 2022 - Thursday 30th June 2022, 17:30 - 21:00

This is an exclusive alumni and guest(s) event to communicate, demo, catalyse and open up discussions around the work of the 2022 graduating students. We look forward to welcoming you to the new building, the graduates, and wider staff team.

Design Products embraces a pluralistic approach through a number of platforms within which our designers develop powerful individual and collaborative design identities. These identities represent emerging discourses and new territories for design in shaping future connections between technology and society. Design Products enables students to conceptualise and test ideas by canvassing, participating, provoking, challenging, and questioning people, places, technology, things, and systems.

Design Products encourages proactive designers who can tackle both real world and future challenges through balancing high levels of creativity and technical delivery with contextual insight, empathy, and diversity. We test and stretch the boundaries of design practice in order to develop solutions to a wide array of global challenges. The featured works by our designers on the platforms: ‘Design through Making’, ‘Object Mediated Interactions’, ‘Design as Catalyst’ and the ‘Design Futures’ pathway are driven by an unrelenting urge to uncover the new.

This year we also developed a new programme ethos emphasising how we shift from product design to design products by applying critical thinking to product assumptions focussing on xenoproducts, polygamic disciplinarity, questions for action, the unshiny, circularity, decolonising design, design dematerialisation, technology agnosticism, products unlimited and design justice.
