‘When it comes to design it’s not about making something beautiful, but making something smart. As good designers, we are always thinking during the design process about maintenance and what the possible improvements in the future might be.' According to Maarten Wilming during the debate ‘Design and Industrial Maintenance’ in Ahoy.
Prolong shelflife products
Wilming adds: 'And that prolongs the economic and technical shelflife of a product considerably!’ Using distinctive Spark projects as a basis, Wilming then showed how integrated product development works in practice.
Design meets industry
It was an exciting evening in which two seemingly different worlds - designers and representatives from the serious Rotterdam industry practice - got talking with each other. The debate ‘Design and Industrial Maintenance’ took place on 23 april 2009 and was the closing event of the Industrial Maintenance beurs in Ahoy Rotterdam.
Convenor: Designplatform Rotterdam.
