Inhoud
Acquiring knowledge and insight into the history of Industrial Design since the beginning of the 20th century. Above that, the development of skills to apply this knowledge in design processes, in order to make better designs in the present and for the future.

Knowledge of history can help us to acquire better understanding of the present, provides the possibility to place contemporary developments within a tradition, and helps to interpret new phenomena by means of precedents. In short, knowledge of the history of the discipline is not only to ascertain a scholarly attitude or to win with trivial pursuit, but foremost to be able to make better designs. The course will therefore address different perspectives towards the history of design since the beginning of the 20th century;
  • Modernism versus Post-Modernism: Functionality versus Meaning
  • Author-driven design versus Demand-driven design.
  • Design as Culture
  • Technology as inspiration for design
  • The History of the Design Profession
  • Design Critique
Exercises and workshops to acquire skills in the translation of knowledge of history for contemporary design cases.
