Consumer society is the result of a convoluted mix of wishes, needs and daily demands. It is part of our implanted culture, embedded in deeply anchored social, economic and political power structures. It is difficult to escape our habitual perspectives and to consider our everyday practices from a distance.
Set against this background, Stefan Hensel steps outside the conventional remit of the industrial designer and uses the design and presentation of a paper-bag collection to draw attention to the invisible – the ephemeral – aspects of our everyday actions.
The project focuses on SDG, “responsible consumption and production”.
