Industrial Design in the Triangle of Art, Craft and Innovation

- 05.Dec.2012

Today, roles of industrial designers are changing. Industrial design was perceived as a more technical discipline in the profession’s history; however, just as in the rest of the world, today’s industrial designers are more preferred in Turkey as well - for the projects which have a marketing-based view and a conceptual, innovative and futuristic claim. As industrial designers begin to create different fields for themselves under these unstable market conditions, the profession's limits are expanding. The panel organized by Industrial Designers Society (ETMK) at the biennial examines the intersection of industrial design with art, craft and innovation; their overlaps and differences, as well as looking for the answers of these questions:


How should industrial design gain a place in the network of invention, technology and engineering? How are these relations positioned in the world? How should designers position themselves against craft and art, while participating in projects that combine craft and art, and trying to make room for themselves in different fields by designing and producing their own products? Is a craftsman a designer as well, or can a designer be a craftsman, or does he/she have to be? How and to what extent can craft affect design? How close is an industrial designer to these concepts?  In which situations does design coincide with art? Can design be “art” and designer “artist” as well? Where should we Turkish designers stand in this triangle, considering the expanding limits? How should Turkish designers be trained, so that they contribute to Turkish economy, find a place in the market and get employed? Should we have a predominant point in this triangle?
