The goal of this project was for the students to create a living related product in a small number. The shift from industrial production to small series changes the approach of design. The process gets less theoretical and focuses more on practical and pragmatic solutions without drifting into arts and crafts.
The major took one semester, starting with a one weekend kick-off workshop and a periodic consultation.
The only restrictions given to the students were that the product had to be situated in the living environment, reproducible, and ready for sale. The final show was hosted at Lokaldesign, a concept store in Hamburg specialized in small series of upcoming designers. All created products were or are still available for purchase.
