“Made here- for me is about the people behind the product who will be making and crafting my design with skills and knowledge in their hands and minds.”
“Made here - for me is about the people behind the product who will be making and crafting my design with skills and knowledge in their hands and minds. To be close to this factories as a designer is like a goldmine were you can improve the development of the design.
The communication between the producer, the designer and the people in the factories combined with having production facilities close to you is very valuable in adjusting and improving the quality.
My furniture the Stretch Me Chair is my fourth prototype and there are still some adjustments to be made in the process of putting it into production. I believe in the process of developing designs by using the knowledge in the crafts and respect for that good things takes time.
