Design Make Project

As part of RE:FORM we are organising a 12 week design-make project, with the brief to design a chair made from plywood sheets. This will involve design students who have just completed a second level design course with the Open University working alongside vocational trainees based at MAKLab Glasgow.

The project replicates real-world distributed manufacturing scenarios with designers electronically sending design files to manufacturers who have to interpret design intent and fabricate them. Through three iterations of the design-make process we hope to encourage learning through reflection and communication.

8 design participants have started and begun initial design exploration. Maker participants will be inducted on┬áMAKLab’s CNC routers on 30th July and will also be introduced to their designer partners electronically. First prototypes will be made on 10th August.
