Abstract:“Buy an identity or surprise your senses” are in short a few from the results of the
course “Design for a specific Theme” by 4th grade students Industrial Design
Engineering at Twente University. The theme in the title of this course is philosophical,
based on the theory of globalization of German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk.
It came out that the structure of this course was particularly suitable for the conversion
of such abstract themes in tangible product design. This paper describes the structure
and the associated teaching methods, gives examples of student results and discusses the
points of interest and application possibilities for this type of course.
