5 THESIS ON
HOW THE WAY WE CHOOSE, OFFER AND
PRODUCE PRODUCTS WILL CHANGE.
WILL SIMPLY BE SENT VIA MAIL.
3D Printing reduces logistic costs drastically and makes
international sourcing possible.
THE STOREHOUSE WILL BE
MEASURED IN BITS
NOT IN FEET.
Storing digital information for 3D printers is nearly free.
That opens up the possibility to offer a huge, worldwide
homogenous product portfolio.
PRODUCTS ARE SOLD
BEFORE THEIR REAL EXISTENCE
3D prints can be produced on demand. Just-in-time
manufacturing has great advantages like little excess and no
TODAY IT‘S ONLY IN YOUR HEAD,
TOMORROW IT‘S IN THE STORE.
3D printing enables designers to implement their creations
right away. Trend cycles shrink to days rather than weeks and
adaptions to existing products are a matter of a few hours.
DESIGN IS INTERACTION,
3D printing liberalizes the access to production resources.
Manufacturer and brand thus lose influence. Designers are
the new rockstars.
