with Christophe Guberan
Design, as a discipline of innovation, can play a key role in improving the energy impact of a product. The intensive use of energy resources that were thought to be unlimited, such as electricity, is now being called into question. The current situation is all the more alarming: governments are preparing for possible energy shortages (fossil fuels, electricity, etc.). It is in this worrying context that design has a duty to provide a concrete response to future needs while respecting the use of our resources. This semester, under the direction of Christophe Guberan, the students used their design talents to rethink an everyday object that consumes more energy than it should, using their powers of observation to choose a type of contemporary object that consumes energy and reduce its dependence on energy during use.
