at EASD Antón Faílde
The Escuela Superior de Arte e Deseño (EASD) Antón Faílde reached 35 years of history in 2017. As a celebration of this long trajectory, a large program of conferences and exhibitions was prepared. It took place between the 3th to the 7th of April, and it was hold in Ourense, at Centro Cultural Marcos Valcarcel.
On Thursday the 6th, the head of R&D at SEISTAG shared his experiences at product design and explained PRINTODECO Project. At the event, more than 30 experts were present, including scholars and professionals of design. After the presentation, a large debate was held regarding manual skills and industrial revolution. Also a large debate took place in relation to the authenticity of solid wood vs. melamine boards as fakes. ¿Moral prejudices?
Along the public presentation, the attention was focused on the collaboration between designers and the industry. This is a topic of big interest and PRINTODECO Project is a clear example of new possibilities for creative collaboration between designers and industrials. In this context, a challenge was launched to the people present at the meeting. Anyone should design a surface; he will get a couple of boards to make a unique furniture with it. We will see the results of this competition within 2017…
