“Sustainable design is a reaction to the global environmental crisis. It aims to produce products, buildings and services, which have a low impact on climate change and the depletion of the world's resources.
While product makers are responding by designing goods that have a reduced carbon footprint at their point of manufacture, leading thinkers in the field of sustainable design believe that a radical change in the way we consume products is one of the musts to diminish the effects of the growing toxic waste coming with the ındustrial garbage.
The aim of this paper is to develop arguments about the need to design products which are emotionally durable and initiate a shift away from a disposable culture in order to achieve a more sustainable path in design and consumption. It is also aimed to give contribution to this new design and production philosophy intending to move away from mass-production and towards tailor-made articles designed and manufactured with greater craftsmanship by scanning various companies and designers embracing this philosopy.”
