Design Anthropology brings together leading international design theorists, consultants and anthropologists to explore the changing object culture of the 21st century. Decades ago, product designers used basic market research to fine-tune their designs for consumer success. Today the design process has been radically transformed, with the user center-stage in the design process. From design ethnography to culture probing, innovative designers are employing anthropological methods to elicit the meanings rather than the mere form and function of objects. This important volume provides a fascinating exploration of the issues facing the shapers of our increasingly complex material world. The text features case studies and investigations covering a diverse range of academic disciplines. From IKEA and anti-design to erotic twenty-first-century needlework and online interior decoration, the book positions itself at the intersections of design, anthropology, material culture, architecture, and sociology.

Designing with Smell aims to inspire readers to actively consider smell in their work through the inclusion of case studies from around the world, highlighting the current use of smell in different cutting-edge design and artistic practices. This book provides practical guidance regarding different equipment, techniques, stages and challenges which might be encountered as part of this process. Throughout the text there is an emphasis on spatial design in numerous forms and interpretations - in the street, the studio, the theatre or exhibition space, as well as the representation of spatial relationships with smell. Contributions, originate across different geographical areas, academic disciplines and professions. This is crucial reading for students, academics and practitioners working in olfactory design.

Hasidic Art and the Kabbalah presents eight case studies of manuscripts, ritual objects, and folk art developed by Hasidic masters in the mid-eighteenth to late nineteenth centuries, whose form and decoration relate to sources in the Zohar, German Pietism, and Safed Kabbalah. Examined at the delicate and difficult to define interface between seemingly simple, folk art and complex ideological and conceptual outlooks which contain deep, abstract symbols, the study touches on aspects of object history, intellectual history, the decorative arts, and the history of religion. Based on original texts, the focus of this volume is on the subjective experience of the user at the moment of ritual, applying tenets of process philosophy and literary theory - Wolfgang Iser, Gaston Bachelard, and Walter Benjamin - to the analysis of objects.

These in-depth, historical, and critical essays study the meaning of ornament, the role it played in the formation of modernism, and its theoretical importance between the mid-nineteenth century and the late twentieth century in England and Germany. Ranging from Owen Jones to Ernst Gombrich through Gottfried Semper, Alois Riegl, August Schmarsow, Wilhelm Worringer, Adolf Loos, Henry van de Velde, and Hermann Muthesius, the contributors show how artistic theories are deeply related to the art practice of their own times, and how ornament is imbued with historical and social meaning.

"La Congrégation du Saint-Esprit, société missionnaire catholique fondée en France en 1703, a fait de l'Afrique noire sa principale terre de mission. À partir des années 1840, les Spiritains rayonnent sur tout son territoire, et plus spécifiquement encore dans sa zone équatoriale (actuels Gabon et Congo). Ses membres y vivent aux côtés de populations dont ils apprennent les langues et dont ils découvrent les coutumes et les rites. Ils recueillent sur le terrain des informations très riches pour les ethnologues et y collectent de nombreux artefacts : objets du quotidien, mais aussi sculptures rituelles associées à des contextes éminemment religieux. La congrégation constitue ainsi au fil du temps d'importants ensembles, qui vont rester pourtant largement méconnus. Un patient travail de recherche mené depuis plusieurs années a permis d'éclairer l'histoire du fonds spiritain, mais aussi de découvrir de nombreux objets inédits, dont quelques authentiques chefs-d'oeuvre de l'art africain. Accompagnées de documents d'archives rares et d'analyses des plus éminents spécialistes de l'Afrique équatoriale, les collections de la Congrégation du Saint-Esprit sont ici enfin présentées au grand public dans toute leur diversité et leur richesse."--Page 4 of cover.

In this revised second edition Dr Killen continues his survey of Egyptian furniture-making techniques with a study of boxes, chests and footstools and traces their evolution from the earliest times. Wooden, papyrus and alabaster boxes and chests were used to hold, protect and store valuable objects, toilet utensils, instruments, tools, garments, curtains, game pieces and papyri amongst other things. Those from the Old Kingdom usually had flat lids and solid board sides, tied together at the corners. During later periods carcase construction became so sophisticated, with the introduction of frame and panel work, that it was possible to construct barrel, shrine and pent-shaped lids. Later chests were elaborately painted, some with funerary scenes, painted with hieroglyphs or had gilt fretwork decoration applied to the sides and lid. This book is copiously illustrated with drawings and photographs and contains a catalogue of additional known pieces of Egyptian furniture preserved in museum collections.

In this third volume Dr Killen investigates how woodworking in ancient Egypt developed in the 19th and 20th dynasties. It establishes the range of wooden furniture manufactured during this period by surveying examples depicted in Ramesside Theban and Memphite tombs. Ancient records show how the procurement of furniture occurred at Deir el-Medina while the design and manufacturing of these furniture forms can be traced through a series of furniture sketches that are annotated with a range of marks and signs. These designs are seen in surviving examples of furniture from settlements such as Medinet el-Gurob. To facilitate the manufacture of furniture, procedures were developed that were managed by cooperatives of Egyptian artisans. These groups established a recognisable Egyptian furniture style that was employed throughout the Ramesside world. Depictions of furniture used by the ruling Ramesside elite are examined including a remarkable collection of furniture used by Rameses III, illustrations of which could once be found in a painted wall scene in his tomb (KV11) and still seen carved on the walls of his temple at Medinet Habu. These illustrations show how royal furniture was used as a symbolic tool to promote the Ramesside Empire at the edges of its sphere of influence. Temple furniture was also used to serve a religious purpose in the rituals performed by Ramesside priests, these forms are also analysed in this volume. This third volume contains a catalogue of known Egyptian furniture preserved in world museums that augments those catalogues found in the first two volumes of this series. The author also provides a distribution list with illustrations of a number of replica pieces of woodwork made by him that can now be found preserved in several museums and collections. The purpose of these replica pieces has been to analyse the design and construction techniques used by Egyptian carpenters using a range of replica woodworking tools.

This revised second edition examines the common forms of furniture used in ancient Egypt, so much of which has been preserved by the dry Egyptian climate and has long been admired for the quality of its design and construction. The story begins with the earliest known pieces and ends with the spectacular discoveries from the 18th dynasty represented mainly by the magnificent furniture from the tomb of Tutankhamun. The insight which Dr Killen brings in the detailed explanations of the materials, techniques and designs of the master craftsmen of ancient Egypt, gives this book a special significance. There is a catalogue of known pieces from museums around the world, classified by type - beds, stools, chairs and tables - with detailed analyses of the materials, tools and joinery. The splendid photographs and drawings illustrate each piece and technique.

"Il s'agit ici de mettre en lumière filiations et croisements entre les oeuvres et les artistes fascinés par un motif de pure abstraction, l'arabesque. Symbole du travail esthétique, faisant jouer l'imagination comme la réflexion la plus haute de l'esprit humain à partir du moment romantisme où la peinture lègue le motif de l'arabesque à la poésie en dépassant le décoratif vers une signification essentielle, exhibant la gratuité, la liberté, la fantaisie et la supériorité de l'art sur la nature. L'arabesque unit les contraires, la courbe et la ligne, donne apparence à l'impossible, se fait chimère et allégorie, hiéroglyphe à déchiffrer. Exaltant le bizarre et le fantasque, elle souligne et transcende le hiatus entre le fini du réel et l'infini de l'idéal, visant une harmonie, une pure combinaison de signes rêvée comme art total. De façon réversible, elle symbolise l'écriture dans son pouvoir de création incessante, et la lecture elle-même, dans ses jeux sémantiques démultipliés : lecture du texte, du tableau, de la partition, du monde et de l'être. Le volume analyse l'évolution du motif de l'arabesque dans le passage du Romantisme à la Modernité en soulignant la manière dont les artistes se nourrissent d'oeuvres et d'images antérieures qu'ils transfigurent en déplaçant signes et matériaux, infléchissant l'arabesque vers une figure synthétique unissant les formes les plus pures de la nature et les formes les plus complexes de l'esprit humain. On redécouvre le motif chez des poètes ou des artistes tels Berlioz, Hugo, Musset, Nerval, Moreau, De Quincey, Poe, Van Gogh, Eisenstein, Michaux, Fourcade. D'autre part, sont mises en relation des oeuvres et des esthétiques apparemment éloignées, par des croisements originaux, tel les effets de la lecture de Schlegel, tel Valéry et le modèle mathématique de Mandelbrot ou les recherches botaniques de Goethe et le Land art d'un Robert Smithson retrouvant la mystique arabe, de sorte que l'ouvrage apporte une synthèse et fait le point sur l'Arabesque du XIXe au XXIe siècle. Il ouvre ainsi des perspectives de réflexion pour la littérature, la musique, la peinture, le cinéma ou la danse, et souhaite donner l'impulsion à d'autres recherches dans ces domaines, en une perspective comparatiste entre les arts qui nous semble être l'avenir le plus créatif des sciences humaines."--Page 4 of cover.

"Cet ouvrage est la dernière publication d'une série de travaux menés dans le cadre du programme de recherche fondamentale "ARACHNÉ. Méthode critique de l'histoire de la Tapisserie. Préceptes, circulation de modèles, transferts de savoir-faire. France - XIVe-XXIe siècles". L'idée maîtresse est de montrer la diversité et la vitalité de la recherche dans ce domaine de [histoire de l'art, en dehors de ce que l'on a pu réaliser dans le cadre du programme. Médium polysémique, la tapisserie touche des domaines variés comme l'histoire politique, économique ou sociale. Médium complexe dans son élaboration, elle permet, en histoire de l'art à proprement parler, d'aborder des questions essentielles, comme celles de l'invention, de la reproduction ou de la réception, à travers notamment l'étude toujours renouvelée des rôles respectifs des différents intervenants dans son processus de création. Les champs de recherche sont loin d'être épuisés et suscitent un intérêt croissant de la part des jeunes chercheurs, mais aussi de la part de collègues étrangers. En dépit de cette pluralité, un point commun se dégage de toutes ces contributions : te rapport au document, quel qu'il soit, et la valeur historique qu'on lui accorde. Tous les auteurs se basent sur des sources inédites ou non encore exploitées et nous offrent ainsi un aperçu de l'histoire de la tapisserie en France ou de la production étrangère dans ses liens avec la France."--Page 4 of cover.

An in-depth look at the dynamic cultural world of tea in Japan during its formative period Around Chigusa investigates the cultural and artistic milieu in which a humble jar of Chinese origin dating to the thirteenth or fourteenth century became Chigusa, a revered, named object in the practice of formalized tea presentation (chanoyu) in sixteenth-century Japan. This tea-leaf storage jar lies at the nexus of interlocking personal networks, cultural values, and aesthetic idioms in the practice and appreciation of tea, poetry, painting, calligraphy, and Noh theater during this formative period of tea culture. The book's essays set tea in dialogue with other cultural practices, revealing larger cultural paradigms that informed the production, circulation, and reception of the artifacts used and displayed in tea. Key themes include the centrality of tea to the social life of and interaction among warriors, merchants, and the courtly elite; the multifaceted relationship between things wa (Japanese) and kan (Chinese) and between tea and poetry; the rise of new formats for display of the visual and calligraphic arts; and collecting and display as an expression of political power.
