Capturing the colours on the streets of Barranco, Lima.
I completed my Masters in Design at the beginning of this year, January 2017, and graduated with distinction. My final project was a series of 6 knitted wall panels and they are currently on display at Bath Spa University. The panels provide an alternative way of decorating a wall that adds pattern and texture, as well as improving acoustics.
A shift in user attitude is needed, moving away from product disposal and towards longevity. The key to product durability is about developing an emotional attachment to something, which creates a desire to care for and repair, rather than dispose of and replace. Designers need to change the way they work, considering the end use of products to allow for a circular system to develop, that extends the life cycle of materials through remaking and reusing.
