Industrial Design projects under the rubric of social design focus on the power and potential for design to address a myriad of social, humanitarian and global concerns. In designing to create opportunity and access, designers work to address inequalities in access that limit individual’s potential. From products that open opportunities for the disabled or the elderly to products that meet needs in developing countries, these examples show how design can impact the larger society.
It’s not about the world of design, it’s about the design of the world. – Bruce Mau
