Material and Other Antidotes for Consumerism
I’m trying to reintroduce an appreciation of material into the modern world; to redefine the term materialistic in a positive light. When people appreciate their things they hold onto them for longer and thus these designs become more sustainable. It’s not just about using material properly though. Designers should strive to make things beautiful and relatable to humanity so that people treat them like beings rather than things. In this way we can combat the dismissiveness and neglect present in today’s consumerism.
