The need of (European) sustainable design codes is the conclusion about a design strategy, which does not frame sustainability in a luxury manner. The earlier definition of luxury during the baroque time specified: “luxury is the effort that exceeds all necessities.” This traditional term is located in an understanding of luxury faced to a design, dominated by material of high quality and in techniques; by high quality the craft ship possibilities. At the end of the 20th century, we felt the trends for more “respect” for high quality in design objects and at the same time, the sensibility for outrunning resources on our planet. Several publications are telling about new visions of a “new luxury as consequence for sustainable consume”. Today we are estimating more value regarding unique goods, of high quality, for cultural heritage and for traditionally based disciplines: The revaluing of traditional textile handcraft in combination with new techniques is very important to find new designs.
The question about sustainable and luxury design objects in the on-going 21st century is created by new
parameters of luxury: terms of “space”, “time”, “self-expressing by solving societies problems”, specify a new frame of Society’s demand on re-design.
The following design objects have great symbolic meanings in demonstrating the message of the designer - with the help of the way of designing, - the way of using materials for a second life, with-the way of expressing designattitude with powerful model names: “footprint”, “coatbrella”, “and cuttings”, “craftwork”.
