STEFAN LIE / DESIGN TALK:
3D Printing and the Future of Manufacture

Thursday, 21 August 2-3pm
Room 4g, City Campus Library

Sydney based designer Stefan Lie will discuss 3D printing and instant manufacturing techniques used to create customised and individual products. Lie’s approach is one of ‘Collaborative Design’ involving the end user in the design process.

Lie applied this methodology and design approach to the robot that now cleans the Sydney Harbour Bridge in a recent project working with Roads and Maritime Services and the Centre for Autonomous Systems, UTS.

Lie was born in Sydney, Australia in 1968 but was educated in Zurich, Switzerland. In 1988 Lie undertook an apprenticeship in toolmaking, immersing him in the Swiss tradition of delivering design excellence. This tradition has influenced Lie’s student and professional life seeing him win numerous awards and international commissions over the past 2 decades of design practice. He is now a lecturer in Industrial Design, PhD Candidate of Interaction Design and Research Associate in User Experience at the University of Technology Sydney.
