Special Subject: Design — Advanced Product Design

Design minor restricted elective

This hands-on studio class focuses on producing a small series of manufactured products. Students will develop products that address specific user needs, propose novel design concepts, iteratively prototype, test functionality and ultimately exhibit their work in a retail context. Stemming from new research and technological developments around MIT, this class will try to imagine the future products that emerge from new materials and machine intelligence. Provides an in-depth exploration of the design and manufacturing of products, through narrative, form, function, fabrication and their relationship to customers.
