Philippe Malouin (CA)
July 29th – August 4th 2018
This workshop focuses 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 will be considered: from initial brainstorm to sketch models, presentation, selection, critique, production, graphic design, packaging, etc.
Philippe will be the client and brief the participants. The brief will outline a very simple method of production on site, which allows the selected designs to be easily manufacturable on the grounds of Boisbuchet. A jury will select and review the submitted products and choose a few to go into production.
The whole workshop thus represents an accelerated outline of a standard design process.
