Stephen Burks.

A Conversation with Felix Burrichter from the Design Academy Launch Festival.

For over a decade, Stephen Burks Man Made has been interested in extending craft traditions into the future by returning the hand to industry. As industry is becoming more and more automated and technologically driven, what role can artisanal techniques have in crafting the future of design and how can technology augment craft traditions without replacing them? 

Stephen Burks is the first A/D/O Designer in Residence.

This conversation is part of the A/D/O Design Academy exploration of Utopia vs. Dystopia and was featured in the Design Academy Launch Festival, January 2017.
