Verner Panton, Stacking Chair, 1960 ⇒ “Thinking about Ram's rules of design and what you have learned about Panton's style and concepts, what contradiction arises? What do you think of this clash? Where do you place yourself on either side of this confrontation?” ⇐ Yasmine

The ultimate aim of all creative activity is the building.

Homework for next Tuesday

  • Project Report 5/5
  • Write your Artistic Statement. This final writing will reflect your project theme and hence the developed cardboard architecture. The text should feature the concept behind the project (approximately ±600 words ⇒ three paragraphs: Power Paragraph, Technical Paragraph, and Research Timeline Paragraph). Find a general sample here. The concept should be clear and understandable. As the text will be integrated into the final documentation displayed on the class documentation website it should address a broader public. Integrate your personal view onto your topic based on the many discussion in this course. Next to your text will be images to feature your conceptual drawings, information graphics and pictures from your prototypes to explain and underline your idea and the development over the course of the semester.
  • Reading: Research Methods for Product Design (chapter 8 (Communicating), p. 156-173)
