Description

This is a book that connects material to designer. For all interior, product, graphic and fashion designers, for anyone connected with packaging, design, architecture or the environment, and for artists and sculptors Material ConneXion will be essential reading.

In this encyclopaedia-style book materials are ordered according to their basic composition:- carbon-based; cement; ceramics; glass; metals; naturals; polymers. Such goodies as dimensionally stable woven glass, sea-shell mosaic tile, anti-bacterial textile and perforated felt reveal their secrets in a thoroughly illustrated volume. A detailed reference section provides a glossary of technical terms, lists of relevant books, professional periodicals and industry trade shows. In an additional feature, 54 leading designers, architects and artists (among them Zaha Hadid, Issey Miyake and Karim Rashid) were asked to reflect on the role of materials in their work, and identify their favourites. Anyone whose work involves selection of materials will find this book of great interest.
