Designing for Sustainability

Dustee discusses Otis' impact on her internship experience.

Toy design for a sustainable future

Through an Otis Creative Action initiative Dustee Womack was invited by Hape International, one of the world’s largest producers of toys made from sustainable materials, to spend 29 days in Zhejiang Province as a member of an international think tank. Hape International, a leader in eco design, integrates sustainability into every aspect of their business.

Working with artisans, designers, craftspeople, and educators, Dustee and her classmates learned about the complexities of eco-centered manufacturing. Their prototype designs range from toddler games and construction sets to nested drums. Hape is now considering these designs for formal development.

At Otis you will experience firsthand that design can serve more than an aesthetic function. It can be a guiding force in where we go as a society.

That’s a level of educational value that even a child could grasp.
