The idea of thinking of the industrial process as a cycle, like an ecosystem, and no longer in linear fashion is not, at the beginning of the 21st century, a utopian or marginal idea. It is not only question of developing a more ecological approach, but of participating in an industry which is responsible, which has a future. The designer can tackle industrial design with strategic vision and rethink the production process. This concept of design means being able to play a major part in the history of a product and to change the basis of production, made fragile by the present juncture. A reworking of industrial logic means redefining the concepts of object and of service with regard to new uses, technologies and their life cycle. A designer can integrate new methods of approach - a transversal analysis of use, trends in way of life, technological innovation, and environment, as well as questioning codes and methods of assessment. The designer’s expertise resides in his/her ability to choose the tools best suited to a given situation, a particular product or service.
