Description

In the framework of the newly formed IKEA x UTS Future Living Lab, the faculty is offering an IKEA-sponsored elective on digital systems for sustainable production to both product design and interior architecture students.

The elective challenges students to speculate on the future of localised manufacturing using sustainable materials in combination with digital production methods. Students do this through researching and experimenting with new 100 per cent sustainable and/or 100 per cent recycled materials and apply them to digital manufacturing processes such as 3D printing and CNC milling. Students then develop the results of their experiments into new production frameworks through which they reimagine existing IKEA products.

Students are paired across the two disciplines for the duration of the session to develop individual projects that fuse object and spatial design to create artefacts to be included in an exhibition and publication.
