About DesignHouse

DesignHouse uses the power of design to engage the local manufacturing industry and help breakdown the silos between Local Manufacturing and Design. By bringing innovative ideas into local manufacturing Designers, Entrepreneurs and Makers can help revitalize the Local Manufacturing Industry. 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. 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. We build skills and capacity through design thinking and digital linking. It's the farm-to-table of manufacturing!
