9780080993591: Materials Experience: Fundamentals of Materials and Design

There currently exists an abundance of materials selection advice for designers suited to solving technical product requirements. In contrast, a stark gap can be found in current literature that articulates the very real personal, social, cultural and economic connections between materials and the design of the material world. In Materials Experience: fundamentals of materials and design, thirty-four of the leading academicians and experts, alongside 8 professional designers, have come together for the first time to offer their expertise and insights on a number of topics common to materials and product design. The result is a very readable and varied panorama on the world of materials and product design as it currently stands.



  • Contributions by many of the most prominent materials experts and designers in the field today, with a foreword by Mike Ashby
  • The book is organized into 4 main themes: sustainability, user interaction, technology and selection
  • Between chapters, you will find the results of interviews conducted with internationally known designers. These ‘designer perspectives’ will provide a ‘time out’ from the academic articles, with emphasis placed on fascinating insights, product examples and visuals

Review:

"...an excellent introduction to a composition that reflects the fundamentals for turning a design idea into a materialized outcome...I recommend this book to those interested in materials design, from those entering the field to professional researchers." --MRS Bulletin, February 2015

"Product designers offer advice to colleagues on selecting materials, considering not only the complex ways in which materials influence how products are embodied and function, but also how the materials affect people's experiences of the products and the complexity of decision making about materials that designers face." --ProtoView.com, April 2014

"When the design focus shifts from 'products' to 'interactions', materials must be considered (also) as 'experience'. This book is a very useful contribution to attend to the experiential side of materials." --Ezio Manzini
