Design to connect
Abstract
Today, more and more products are made with different materials and composites to fulfil the more and more requiring product needs. New materials and production processes creates new possibilities for designers. Designing connections is still an important aspect of developing products. The connections influence the assembly, the product aesthetics, the strength of the product, … How to design and construct a product depends on the creativity and the experience of the designer. The creativity is the main force behind design and innovation. This paper discusses an approach which considers connections on different levels. By looking at connections in different ways, designers could create new insights and stimulate their creativity.
