A fascinating exploration of Max Lamb's experimentation with materials, craft, and technology One of the most exciting designers working today, Max Lamb (b. 1980) has received international acclaim for his innovative experiments with materials, craft, and technology. Drawn to the form of the chair and its relationship to the human body, Lamb has explored many different inventive outcomes in his ever-evolving Exercises in Seating project. This book investigates over a decade of creative practice with a focus on his interest in seating--from stone thrones to wood chairs and enameled-steel stools. In Lamb's own words, "A seat is very simple in function, but very complex in the many different characters, forms, and ideas it can express." Both retrospective and forward looking, this volume--created in collaboration with the artist--is the most thorough investigation of Lamb's work to date and features an exclusive interview with noted artist Ryan Gander in which the designer discusses his creative processes and goals.

Detailing over 100 sound absorbing materials and finishes with case studies of innovative architectural and design applications. Sound Materials is a definitive resource for architects, designers, acousticians, engineers, students and creative professionals – the first publication of its kind to catalogue over 100 sound absorbing materials, detailing inspiring real-world applications. Project profiles include work from leading architects and designers such as OMA, Gehry Partners, Foster + Partners, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, and Barber & Osgerby. These projects showcase sound absorbing materials in a variety of interior design and architectural contexts and underscore some of the common acoustical and material challenges presented by specific applications, such as healthcare, education, performing arts, office, retail and industrial environments. Fundamental technical concepts are clearly presented to offer readers with an understanding of how materials absorb sound and how these materials are commonly used to reduce noise and reverberation, inform our sense of space, and improve communication in everyday environments. This book not only surveys an extensive range of materials past, present and emerging, but also highlights many exciting opportunities for future innovation and collaboration at the intersections of acoustical engineering, materials science, design and architecture.

" "Indifference towards people and the reality in which they live is actually the one and only cardinal sin in design" – Dieter Rams. Dieter Rams’ life and work are indelibly linked to his thoughts about how people live, and how they can live better. Products he designed in the 1960s are still being produced and sold today – only one demonstration of the strength of his work. This comprehensive monograph covers both Rams’ life and his work, as well as his ideas on good design, which continue to inspire designers and consumers today. A personal foreword by Jonathan Ive evokes the influence that Rams has had on his own work and, by extention, the objects with which so many of us share our everyday lives. An introduction and an essay by Klaus Kemp tell the story of Rams’ early life, his training as an architect, and the intellectual context in which his ideas were developed. The next four chapters examine Rams' work and his life – which are more or less synonymous – in depth. This includes his role at Braun as well as the work he did for the furniture company Vitsoe. Each chapter includes sketches, prototypes, finished products and the marketing for those products, giving a complete picture of Rams’ work and its context. Two other chapters in this section present Rams’ own house, the only work of architecture that he completed, and examine the products he designed at the level of detail, a crucial aspect to his work. A further chapter examines Rams’ "ten commandments" of good design and his credo, "less but better", in the context of his role as head of design at Braun, and a final chapter explores his legacy in the work of contemporary designers including Naoto Fukasawa, Jonathan Ive, Sam Hecht, and Konstantin Grcic. This beautifully designed book includes a wide variety of visual material, including sketches and technical drawings, photographs of Rams’ work as well as his life, archival material from both Braun and Vitsoe, Ingeborg Rams’ subtle photographs and Vitsoe’s playful graphic design and advertising. This book will appeal not only to fans of Dieter Rams’ work, but to everyone drawn to the message behind his "ten commandments" of good design – which are really ideas about how we can all live better and more sustainable lives.

The scientific analysis of design thinking continues to burgeon and is of considerable interest to academic scholars and design practitioners across many disciplines. This research tradition has generated a growing corpus of studies concerning how designers think during the creation of innovative products, although less focus has been given to analysing how designers think when creating less tangible deliverables such as concepts and user-insights. Analysing Design Thinking: Studies of Cross-Cultural Co-Creation brings together 28 contributions from internationally-leading academics with a shared interest in design thinking who take a close look at professional designers working on a project that not only involves soft deliverables, but where a central role is played by co-creation across multiple, culturally diverse stakeholders. This collection of detailed, multi-method analyses gives a unique insight into how a Scandinavian design team tackled a specific design task within the automotive industry over a four-month design process. All papers draw upon a common, video-based dataset and report analyses that link together a diversity of academic disciplines including psychology, anthropology, linguistics, philosophy, architecture, management, engineering and design studies. The dataset affords multiple entry points into the analysis of design thinking, with the selected papers demonstrating the application of a wide range of analytic techniques that generate distinct yet complementary insights. Collectively these papers provide a coherent framework for analysing and interpreting design thinking ‘in vivo’ through video-based field studies.

Jasper Morrison's name is not associated with spectacular consumer design products. Instead, he has chosen to align himself from the start with an approach that designers often return to after careers spent otherwise: simple and durable forms that remain functional and true to their materials, and retain an unmistakable and exciting modern formal language. His success in the European design landscape over the past decade is without parallel, perhaps because his first furniture and interior designs appeared at a time when the overwhelming nature of flashy decor had become underwhelming. Arguing against Uselessism and for Utilism, Morrison equates the decorative content of a design with a lack of understanding of design's utilitarian purpose. Likewise, he continues to apply himself to doorhandles and doors, bottles of beer and busstops, regarding no aspect of daily life as unworthy of consideration as a design problem. Everything But the Walls provides a much needed survey of Morrison's working methods and their results, as well as an exploration of the sources of his inspirations and ideas.

A radical re-evaluation of American modernism through four generations of artists and their work – now in paperback. "That rarity of rarities, an opinionated but not eccentric scholarly history by a veteran museum curator whose every page crackles with original thinking and bears the stamp of a preternaturally sharp eye? Excellent reproductions and crisp typography complement the lucid prose." —Wall Street Journal Twentieth-century art in America has long been understood in two very separate distinct halves: pre-World War II, often considered as inferior and provincial; and the triumphant, international post-war work that made a complete break with everything that went before. Agee discovers exciting new connections between artists and artworks, which strongly suggest that 1945 was not such a dividing line in art history after all. His fresh research offers an innovative approach and a brilliant take on art history.
