3D-printing lets the consumer design and manufacture their own physical goods but does that mean there’s no need for designers anymore?

Pekka Salokannel introduces us to the world of 3D-printing and how it will change the way we think about design and consumerism.

About the speaker

TURN AND FACE THE STRANGE…

You are a pioneer in your little known field. You manage to juggle things to be positioned in just the right place as the world catches on and the sparks of interest crackle and pop into an inferno of exciting progress. Ignition! This delicate combination of skill, luck and intelligent foresight is driven in no small part by our theme for CM/HEL this month, Change.

Having inhabited the richly varied worlds or industrial design, education and the broader ‘maker’ community our clever speaker Pekka Salokannel knows a thing or two about these perpetually shifting sands.

As a pioneer of the 3D printing industry he opens interesting doors to us about the exponential nature of growth in this digital age and how change polarises populations.

As Spring breaks forth don’t miss this most transformative CM/HEL as Pekka explains why the only real constant we know is change and perhaps even shares some tools to help us plot the ‘path to now’.

ALL CHANGE.
