Over the last decade corporations have been insufficient in satisfying and addressing longer term humanistic qualities. The global approach has been to converge fuse like-solutions and optimize resources at the expense of cultural identity, individual craftsmanship, and human centred design solutions. There is a growing demand for a more responsive approach, that is able to include our intuitive feelings and emotions, a desire for greater diversity, variety, sensuality, and a bespoke responsiveness that go beyond our everyday needs.
