Abstract
The world of today is a wonderful and exciting playground for designers. We live in a time where -technically sound- almost everything is possible. We can fly a man to the moon and bring him back alive on earth. After proving this level of competence of human kind, it cannot be that hard to make clever and sustainable products for everyday use. Is it? It might not sound like rocket science, but somehow it is. It appears to be more complex than ever before. In a world with endless technical possibilities a new challenge is popping up. Now that we can ‘make the things right’, the real design challenge of today is ‘making the right things’.
