What is the course about?

GDCV1106 looks at the things surrounding us in our daily lives, and—through practical application of aesthetical, phenomenological and other design theories—establishes concepts about the true nature(s) of things that allow us to make more informed choices about the objects that we fill our lives with. Emphasis will be on product design, but will also make connections to furniture and fashion design, and other object-based design areas. It also contains a significant number of practical studio classes that allow participants to hands-on experience and explore what it takes to make things “beautiful”.

What do the students say about this course?

This course is relaxing and works like an extra-curricular activity… This is also the first time for me to experience production using laser cutter. Besides, the course lecturer is patient and always willing to help. The free learning environment allows us to promote creativity.
