Metaphors of uses

Louis HOTTEAU. Diploma project. DSAAD Product design. 2020

This project is the result of works and engaged talks about daily objects, their uses, what they say about us and our society. Driven by values of sustainability, aesthetics and functionalism, it comes from the meeting of two fields, object design and strategic planning, is connected to the challenges of sustainability, preservation of the environment and it is linked to the future of an ever-changing product design.

How to make users aware of the extent of their belongings in order to bring them towards a responsible and sustainable consumption and to fight the ethical uniformity of our interiors?

Thus, the area of research for objects is linked (?) to domestic space because in addition to providing common references, the objects with which people have the greatest affinity are found at home.

The end product of this research and collaboration is an edition book that lists nine objects. These are depicted through text accompanied by illustrations.
