Description

With over 900 colour images, Ultra Materials shows why, how and with what effects cutting-edge materials are transforming our way of life. Smart substances, intelligent interfaces and sensory surfaces are redefining the environment in which we live. Using groundbreaking recent products and projects, this book reveals the new application of materials in architecture, interiors, fashion, textiles, and product and vehicle design.

Special sections are devoted to interviews with designers, such as David Adjaye, Hussein Chalayan and Marcel Wanders who have made particular use of new materials; an analysis of the transformative science being employed, based on fibre technologies, sustainability, biomimicry, nanotechnology and fabric innovation; and a window into the future drawing on the ideas of leading experts.

The book includes a showcase of 400 of the newest materials, an in-depth glossary and a comprehensive directory of designers, material organisations and design publications, as well as details of professional competitions, awards and fellowships and an index of new materials and their properties. This book is an indispensable resource for all interior, product, graphic and fashion designers; for anyone connected with packaging, design, architecture or the environment; and for artists and sculptors.
