Here at Casa Jasmina we’re always eager to open our doors to makers, designers and visitors. But, we have to admit, we have a bias for students: fresh minds always come with fresh ideas.
This year, our friend and supporter Prof. Fabrizio Valpreda of Politecnico di Torino decided to make Casa Jasmina a real-life working field for his Design by Components Course:
Designing new products, personal goods, devices is a matter of defining and connecting different complex components. Those are the results of different knowledge fields, and those fields are typical of different people. So, by extension, we could say that design is a matter of connecting people. There lives the idea to make our students experiment those connections with the best examples of innovation mates we have in our local area: Officine Innesto, Fablab Torino and Casa Jasmina were the perfect communities to make that experimentation real.
Twelve teams of students were asked to develop projects to improve Casa Jasmina and its inhabitants’ experience in the house. Some of them even came to life and were prototyped in Fablab Torino.
We already showed you the first stage of the projects in a previous post. Now, we’re ready and happy to present the final results to the world!
