Social Responsibility and Design
"To design the appearance of responsibility is a subject a caring society needs to face and deal with. (...) Do designers create in response to the need of responsibility or are they just responsible for the design?" (Beuker, Nicolas, 2011) This question has been analyzed by Luise Eichhorn in her bachelor thesis. In collaboration with a carpentry for disabled people (Wendelstein Werkstätten Raubling) and the brand Side By Side a product concept was developed: Its name is UNTERHOLZ. It is a lifestyle accessory for culinary herbs. With water reservoir and self watering function.
