AVOIDANCE OF DESIGN ERRORS IN ECO-INNOVATION WITH RECYCLED MATERIALS

AVOIDANCE OF DESIGN ERRORS IN ECO-INNOVATION WITH RECYCLED MATERIALS

Year: 2006

Section: ECO DESIGN IMPLEMENTATION WORKSHOP

Abstract

The interest in applying recycled materials to the production of boards for furniture and panelling has arisen in response to the social awareness of environmental degradation. In the early stages of product design, the designer is often required to make experienced judgements when information is lacking. In the case of a new material, due to the lack of experience, designers need assistance to make well-founded judgements. The paper explores the needs of furniture designers when a new material is introduced by means of studying strategies for design errors avoidance in the furniture industry, and the hazards which are avoided by means of having knowledge regarding material characteristics early in the design phase.

Keywords: design errors, eco-innovation, recycled materials, furniture design industry
