Philippe Malouin | Mass Production | Boisbuchet 2018
This workshop focussed on designing a simple design object and producing it locally at Boisbuchet. The selected objects will be part of Boisbuchet’s inaugural product line which will be subsequently sold on the Boisbuchet website.
All aspects of a real product design process were considered: from initial brainstorm to sketch models, presentation, selection, critique, production, graphic design, packaging, etc.
The whole workshop represented an accelerated outline of a standard design process.
