The product design students at Malmö University experiment with design and he understanding of design using a number of different methods, tools and materials in the course of their studies.
Cartonboard is an inexpensive material that is easy to work with – it offers many possibilities and can be handled almost anywhere.
In the project exhibited at Form/Design Center, first-year students have worked on an artefact that can be worn on the body. The artefact should reflect the essence of their own design language and so they must explore, experiment and gain an understanding of factors that are difficult to put into words. The assignment has a range of limitations, one being that the students can only use only white cartonboard with small touches of colour or other materials.
