This is the starting point for Xavier Majoral‘s speech, partner and business designer of Stimulo.
People will print their own products at home? Or will there be a multitude of creative, learning machines to replace us? in the near future it seems that as designers we will need to stick as close as possible to the end users and accompany them in the decision making and design process, accompanying them trough the multiple iterations in different phases of conceptualisation, development and industrialisation toward a final product.
The event has taken place in the CEDICO building of the PCiTAL, where Stimulo presented the paper “The day the world woke up without design”. Which explained, we not only design components or products that are easy to manufacture and assemble. Product design focuses on the entire life cycle, from concept to manufacturing, maintenance and repair, to the end of its useful life.
Xavier Majoral also indicated that legislative changes, new materials and processes, such as the production of additive production or 3D printing, open new freedoms and create new design rules. Therefore, we are talking about more holistic and empathetic solutions, focused on the user’s experience. ”
From Stimulo we want to say thanks to Parque Científico y Tecnológico Agroalimentario de Lleida (PCiTAL) to hold the 3rd session of 3D printing for professionals and organized by Google Developer Group Lleida (GDG Lleida), the company INTECH3D and Centre Europeu d’Empreses i Innovació (CEEILleida).
