Industrial design - elucidations about the concept of industrial design

Industrial Design

design for mass production

The expression industrial design refers to the design of products that have been thought to be mass produced by the factories through technological industrial procedures.

The discipline of industrial design is applicable to a comprehensive range of production fields that includes both engineering and non-engineering areas. Many products of industrial design feature a combination of forms, and engineering elements.

Industrial design takes into consideration and generates trends about ideological or sociological themes. Among the most important ones are those which are linked to the concepts of usability, manufacturability, planned breaking, and planned out-of-fashion.
