Design out waste, a project by The Agency of Design
A really interesting project about the responsible design of small electronic consumer goods in relation to the human psyche.
Well worth a quick look with some great explanatory videos and pics and neat ideas to be had.
The Realist – a mass produced product, designed for recapture through existing recycling systems and rapid disassembly.
The Pragmatist – a strong consumer-manufacturer relationship establishes repair and makes this object last 9 times longer.
The Optimist – where the material value and longevity of the object becomes so clear it will last for generations.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find any images of the realist toaster as their website was having a bad day so If anyone knows of any pics flick me a link!
