Design Futures: Environmental Awareness

The task for this project was to raise awareness of how everyday products can impact the environment.

I chose to focus on the idea of ‘old’ games consoles that people have a tendency to discard when new technology is released. My concept was an informative display case that described the environmental impact of each component of the technology and peripherals.

The idea was not to discourage people from buying new technology, but rather to encourage responsible disposal, engaging in 2nd hand trading or appreciating the ‘retro’ value of old technology.
