The paper discusses current design issues regarding strategies concerned with upcoming flexible on-site fabrication technologies. It also focuses on the actual advantages of these technologies for a sustainable fabrication and innovative materials. Product development processes have to be readjusted to the new requirements. The focus is on the early stages of product development - the aesthetic design of the product and its functionally-oriented conception and layout (the gestaltung).
The paper gives some examples of the efficient configuration and product formation particularly with regard to the new flexible on-site fabrication, and explains how the design is capable of influencing the quality and advantages of innovatice products.
