Performance Product Design

The programme will explore the factors which best describe and help interpret human centred needs to inspire the creation of designs with sustainable social and commercial value. It will support the development of live and speculative projects, deepened and broadened by investigation of research principles and reflective practice. It aims to combine studio based professional practice with design research, including material resources, the application of new and existing technologies, product life cycle and disposal. It will consider the future of the product and designer within the global economy, through issues of materiality, experience and representation as part of a wider context of systems and organisations.
