Why Materials Matter: Responsible Design for a Better World

Why Materials Matter: Responsible Design for a Better World

£39.99

Quantity
What does it mean to live in a material world, and how do materials of the past and present hold the keys to our future? Why Materials Matter tackles these questions by focusing on various issues that human beings face and by discussing potential materials-related solutions Through the lens of intriguing projects by designers, artists, makers, and scientists, it presents a colourful panoply of ideas, technologies, and creative efforts that focus on the earth's most basic elements, while also showing how these elements can be transformed into entirely new materials. It explores, for example, how ancient practices such as dyeing fabric and making glue may hold the secret to renewable and earth-friendly consumer products, as well as how recycling plastics can tackle food waste, and how a type of light metal being developed may one day make air travel less fuel-reliant This book also investigates the potential of the digital experience, suggesting how this most ephemeral type of matter can be used to improve our world Eye-catching and provocative, Why Materials Matter serves as both a stimulating catalogue of possibilities and a timely manifesto on how to consume, manufacture, and design for a better future

Design for the Corporate World: 1950-1975

£35.00

Quantity
Architectural, industrial, and graphic design in the United States from the 1950s through to the 1970s - generally known as mid-century modern - is now perceived as a golden era, with artists such as Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, and Eliot Noyes having become household names. This volume looks at the relationship between these designers and the companies who employed them, highlighting the political, social and cultural circumstances in which seminal design icons such as the Selectric Typewriter for IBM and the distinctive Westinghouse Electric Manufacturing Company logo were created It reveals not only why corporations during this period needed designers more than ever before, but also why designers felt ambivalent about their work for these large businesses. In doing so, it sheds new light on the changing self-image of the designer and on these famous mid-century graphic, product, and furniture designs Full colour throughout, this volume is richly illustrated with fascinating archival photography, concept sketches and beautiful illustrations of the logos, products and buildings designed for the companies
