COPENHAGEN SEP 23-24, 2020

Michael König

Bang & Olufsen Head of Design Research

All you really need is some cardboard

The most important job of the designer is getting the details right. But all too often, we get the details right but the product wrong. As designers, we need to find the time to start our projects off right by rapidly exploring different solutions. With the confidence of the right solution, we can spend our time perfecting the details where it has an impact.

In this workshop, Michael will take us through the rapid prototyping framework used at B&O. You will prototype several versions of your own speakers from simple cardboard material and test it with other users until you find the right design. After the workshop, you will be able to apply this fast prototyping approach to your own digital and physical projects.
