Lucardi, Audrey Lea
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is an attempt to embody sustainability by discovering value that transcends cost or function. Many objects are considered waste when they still function, but no longer delight the user. Using digital modeling tools and computer numerical controlled machines, designers can digitally craft products unique to the individual. Utilizing these aspects to create pleasure, designers can motivate consumers to be more thoughtful in their consumption, extend the desirable life of a product, and change the current societal norm of disposability.
