Abstract
The output of industrial design education and practice has always been product-centric. In this study Asian, Australian and Latin American students were challenged with a different approach to design briefs: not to design objects per se as an automatic re-sponse to satisfaction of wants, but to consider sustainable product-service systems (PSS). It was intriguing to see how students from different countries responded to the same briefs with proposals which are strongly tied to their cultural traditions.
