Av Johanna Jonsson

This project is based on fear of over consumption resulting in large environmental impacts, aims to highlight the importance of product longevity. Through applying different strategies within sustainable design, emotional design and aesthetics, LAST is a product proposal designed to allow a prolonged relationship and attachment. The Japanese concept Wabi Sabi has been used as inspiration, with the purpose of guiding the design towards disconnecting from a materialistic and consumerist society.
