How can sustainability inform design methods and processes?

Anette delivered a workshop and talk for the seminar series: Methods & Processes for all the design students across the Master programmes at Goldsmiths. Together with Hannah Jones, programme leader for MA Design Futures at Goldsmiths the students got to explore the life cycle of a selection of everyday objects in a tactile and qualitative way as well as get an overview of how sustainability informs new visions, strategies and frameworks for design. This sparked some interesting debates on some of the paradoxes and contradictions many products such as: a Patagonia fleece jacket, a wooden stapler or a Guerlain powder refill container may pose, and what more it offered opportunities to rethink about use and adequate lifespan of products.
