A revolution in product development, production and distribution is imminent due to the Internet’s disruptive nature and the easy access to CNC machines.
Open Design is a proposal to make this happen. It’s aim is to shift Industrial Design to become relevant in a globally networked information society. The presentation introduces some of my Open Design work, its context, essentials and insights expressed through this new design method. It describes some realizations about industrial design and its relations to the Internet revolution, creativity, education and consumerism. Ronen will also talk about the new design movement that is emerging around various Open Culture communities, platforms and individuals, its design concepts and attitudes.
Ronen Kadushin is a designer, design educator and an Open Design pioneer living in Berlin.
