This book provides an in-depth study of the creative and manufacturing processes behind 50 contemporary domestic design objects. Chosen from around the world, they span furniture, lighting, tableware and textiles. The work of both long-established and emerging designers is featured, with each product selected for its significant use of new technology, unorthodox or complex production process, use of innovative materials (or traditional materials adapted in new and unexpected ways) and, in some cases, for the creative concept behind it. Each project is presented through explanatory text as well as inspirational image, sketch, detail shots of production processes and the completed product. A glossary of production methods is also included. Process offers students and professional designers alike an interesting and useful insight into how products are designed. This revised edition contains six new projects.

One of the most influential books on colour ever published, Josef Albers' "Interaction of Color" is a masterwork. Originally issued in 1963 as a limited-edition set of commentary and 150 silkscreened colour plates, the book introduced generations of students, artists, designers, and collectors to Albers' unique approach to complex principles. While the original publication has long been out of print, this beautiful new edition now brings Interaction back into classrooms, studios, and on to bookshelves, where it will find an eager new audience. Lavishly produced as a two-volume slipcased set, this book replicates Albers' revolutionary exercises, explaining concepts such as colour relativity and vibrating and vanishing boundaries through the use of colour, shape, die-cut forms, and movable flaps that illustrate his astonishing demonstrations of the changing and relative nature of colour. Also included for the first time are new studies from the Albers archive, produced by the artist's students in the early 1960s. A celebration of Albers' legendary achievements, this beautiful publication is an essential addition to any serious art library.

7. Rethinking sitting [2009]

Book
206 p. : ill. (chiefly col.) ; 24 cm.
In "Rethinking Sitting", the designer best known for the Tripp Trapp chair offers insight into his thinking about sitting and explains the philosophy that informs his pioneering chairs. Peter Opsvik designs beautiful seating that allows as many different sitting postures as possible and makes it easy to move and change frequently between them. "Rethinking Sitting" presents abundant drawings and photographic examples drawn from Opsvik's wide-ranging body of work along with text explaining his unconventional seating solutions. "Rethinking Sitting" contains useful information for everyone who, for professional, educational or personal reasons, is interested in sitting solutions-as all of us who live in a sedentary society should be.

These chairs aren't made just for sitting down - they're pieces of art meant to delight the eyes, stretch the imagination and occasionally tickle the fancy!

Internationally recognised furniture designer Craig Nutt has selected the breathtaking examples - by such respected names as Garry Knox Bennett (two ladder-back chairs) and Andrew Muggleton (his "Balustrade Chaise").

Furniture design is a complex art. Traditionally, techniques of the craft have been passed down from master to apprentice, but these days that is less and less the case in contemporary design. Students are now required to take courses and figure out much of it themselves. This book, as with others in the Design Secrets series, takes readers into the studio and reveals tips and techniques as well as the inspiration that brought the concept to life.Many graphic and product designers are crossing into furniture design, including Karim Rashid, a designer of product, space, light, and fashion, and Todd Oldham, a photographer, graphic designer, product designer, interior designer, and influence in film/video and TV. Oldham is now the star designer at Lazy Boy--a company that has experienced a remarkable rebirth and revamp.Design Secrets: Furniture shadows similar success stories by showcasing award-winning furniture designs from around the world. Each profile is complete with sketches, notes, and interim iterations revealing how the final piece came to be.
