The high quality of design products is a consequence of sustainable design, investigation of origins as well as requirements and additive design qualities while focusing on responsible cultural and material conduct. To think, to produce, to invest in a sustainable manner, means to act responsibly in production and economic circles to arrive to circular concept models. In addition, cultural education is the greatest investment in sustainable economies. All these facts are based on the industrial heritage and of course on the waste produced during individual lives as well as impassioned people. With the digital revolution of the 21st century, on the one hand a "design shift" (Wachs, M.-E.) comes into consideration, comparable to the cultural turns (Bachmann-Medick, D.) of the 20th century. On the other hand, a look at the changing working conditions in industrial design engineering circles - with consequences for the production process, the design process and of course for education, has to be examined and evaluated. The thesis will discuss the importance and impact of inter-scenario design, the related creative process and the impact of individual design power.
