Slow Design Concept

31 Oct

  This is a concept that is showing growth among the sustainable designers, retailers, and business people in the world.  This is a branch of the Slow Food Movement.

Innovative concept stores are starting to crop up in cities that promote the idea of :

Holistic approach to design that takes into consideration the social and material factors, as well as long term impact it has on the earth.

introduced with a paper in 2002 to coin Slow Design

“Slow Design- A Paradigm of living sustainably?”

“dematerialization required for long term sustainability as it takes into account the the non-material nature of human well being and happiness.”

This makes sense and I found another wordpress site that features the retailers involved with this movement.
