  • The Beam project is about designing sustainable local products with proper service. This project aims to develop products based on local material and skills while generating local social and cultural values. What kinds of communication between designers and stakeholders can be possible for design in the local context? After building the products, how can we practically connect the products with proper services?

    beam project

    BEAM project means a light and joyful project of sustainable local product development. The project is aiming at a basic structure for local product design process for micro designers and SMEs.

    The project’s process aims at merging the local culture into physical, locally designed-products as designers actively learn from local community members. The structure of this master’s thesis consists of three main parts which are a research, field research and sustainable design strategy. The target area of the field research, named by Beam project, was Uganda, East Africa. In the process, jerrycan, which is a plastic water canister, was the main material for SLPD and a symbol of local water problems. At the same time, all designed products from jerrycan are strongly related to social issues, such as water issues, education and transportation.
