Industrial design: Are we damaging the environment?

This event has happened

The truth is that Industrial designers design and mass produce ‘things’ that use materials and energy which can damage the environment.
Should we stop our work? Or is there a way for us to be passionate about sustainability and continue to design new things?

In his talk, Pentagram Partner Jon Marshall will discuss some of the issues he wrestles with being an environmentally conscious industrial designer. He will describe the responsibility industrial designers bear for sustainability and talk about projects he believes demonstrate being a designer can have a positive impact on the environment.
