The aim of this course is to develop advanced skills in the combination of technology in products or for producing products and visual understanding of form and composition in a product design for a given context. The course will introduce cutting edge technologies in relation to production. The course will also focus on theories of perception and cognition in relation to form, complex form analysis, analogies, metaphors, storytelling etc. in order to strengthen the students’ professional knowledge of form and how metaphors and analogies influence the target group’s perception of form. The study of new technologies will establish an up-to-date knowledge in this field. The course will test this integrated knowledge in a short design project on an advanced level.
