Another challenge in design after the Covid-19 is to design anything that can help society, to make everyone live happily and safely.
There are three concepts of disruptive design, introduced by Dr. Suchatchavee Suwansawas, Rector of King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), during the press conference on the Future of Design in the Post Covid-19.
The three concepts are;
1. Designs for Personal Hygiene in the Common Area
Personal hygiene is needed to take into consideration even when designing the common area. This personal hygiene includes social distancing, UV-C installation, putting hand sanitizer, anti-infective material, and an air filtering system to prevent germs, etc.
2. Designs for Users’ Convenience and Beauty
The design must be user-friendly, universal but yet beautiful. Both convenience and beauty are two things that need to be developed put into design at the same time.
3. Designs for social access
Last but not least, the design needs to be practical and fully applied to society. It covers material selection, cost calculation, reasonable quantity of production together with, evaluation of practicality, to make the design useful to society at a wide scale.
