Made in the Future

Technology is rearranging our relationships with design. Our tools are getting smarter, data is influencing our process and the user is often our co-creator. All of this changes how we approach the craft of design. 

Colin Raney will consider how new technologies such as 3D printing are creating new possibilities and challenging traditional notions of design.
