Re-imagining Tomorrow: A LASALLE Product Design Showcase


Re-imagining Tomorrow presents design solutions to the general public that rethink the way we live, consume and care for self and others. The programme aims to showcase outcomes of fruitful partnerships between industry and institutes of higher learning for holistic and foresight-oriented design education. The key objectives of sustainability, connectivity and smart use of technology are integrated into project briefs in consultation with industry experts and lecturers. As Singapore moves towards Sustainable Development Goals, emphasis on design solutions is placed on how products can be interoperable in increasingly complex product and consumer landscapes.

The exhibition of works were produced by Level 2 students as part of a 14-week project brief, developed by LASALLE’s BA(Hons) Product Design programme.

The project aimed to expand notions of taste, care and well-being for lower to middle-income consumers. Using key concepts to drive prototype development, each student showcased their design solutions for sustainability, connectivity and smarter use of technology that uplifts consumer experiences. Among these core values, the design intent that runs through these conceptual projects was the adaptive use of design features for interoperability within complex product systems. The top three submissions resulted in those students winning highly coveted internships at global MNCs.
