Since the Industrial Revolution people have become used to mass manufacturing and lesser importance has been given to creating, assimilating and enhancing existing knowledge and understanding of nature and universe. The best way to learn is to simply start doing and even if it is just tinkering with the world surrounding us. The purpose of this project was to question the present design practices and find suitable alternatives. The core objective was to explore design through the lenses of design democracy, human centeredness, sustainability, intuitiveness, co-creation, collaboration, openness, making and tinkering. This led to creation of new products, process and systems involving various stakeholders
