The DesignHouse Mission is to revitalize Local Manufacturing with Innovative Ideas, inspire Designers to produce locally and linking & mentoring the next generation to careers.
DesignHouse is a nonprofit that utilizes the power of design to maximize local manufacturing potential.
Just as the local food movement has inspired chefs, instead of starting with a product design and then searching for a manufacturer, DesignHouse reverses the process. We start with local manufacturing capabilities and ideate around existing machines.
WHY LOCAL MANUFACTURING?
This revitalization not only contributes to needed jobs in local communities, but creates environmentally sustainable supply chains and strengthens communities by keeping the economy local. Our programs help utilize manufacturing capabilities through innovative ideas, inspiring designers to design for local manufacturing and link the next generation to skilled manufacturing careers.
