A few points;
WHY make something? Consciousness of design – make it because its better, it helps push forward the environmental benefit, using less material and more function
LIGHTWEIGHT : By the reduction of weight the easier and lighter it is to transport. lighter carbon footprint
Recontextualising materials into new forms – find new uses for materials. push boundaries and experiment without compromising performance.
