What was better in the old days!? | Short Project WiSe 2019/20

Short info project 
for BA 3. Semester, 5+. Semester and MA Anpassungstudium

Supervision: Maciej Chmara


Was war denn früher besser!?
We compare products and production processes of objects during the last 20, 30, 50 years. What are the developments and how do they affect the assembly, repairability and the lifespan of a product. The research allows better understanding of the technology behind products, and its impact on the longevity of the objects you design.

But… What could be the next step? Propose also a concept / principle / design for that step.
