Self-produced design is becoming increasingly popular. Self-production is a kind of affirmation of autonomy, but also a real self-promotional strategy. Other times, it’s rather a step towards forms of highly artisanal forms of production, between single pieces and small series. Self-production can become the main way for young designers, moved by the renewed interest in manual and direct experimentations on the subject.
