Until recently, analysis of the future was left to forecasters and trend experts. Today, however, designers and architects are playing an increasingly important role, creating products and environments that will change the way we live. Design Futures is a thought-provoking exploration of the radical directions that the creative industries are taking. Design expert Bradley Quinn reveals how a new generation of products, materials and surfaces will align design with such areas as artificial intelligence, genetic engineering and nanotechnology, reinventing the spaces in which we live and work, and how we experience the human body. Featuring interviews with renowned designers, architects and trend forecasters - among them Karim Rashid, Toyo Ito and Li Edelkoort - and over 250 illustrations of futuristic products and concepts, this is a unique guide to some of the twenty-first century's most compelling ideas.

Product Description:

Rare Book

Review:

Textile and design expert Bradley Quinn secures his place among authors on the pulse of technology and design... Treading the boundary between academic and journalist, the author's relaxed approach belies his curiosity. Balanced with his opinion of the trends he's observed and thoughtful conjecture, Quinn often leaves the reader with a gaping jaw. --Cool Hunting

The new book "Design Futures" (Merrell), by Bradley Quinn, surveys the high-tech avant-garde in design and architecture. Trends include buildings that rotate and revolve to give residents varied views or the best light; robots that help with housework; clothing made of "smart" material that reacts to movement and the environment; and furniture made from thin, ultra-strong fibers. --Wall Street Journal

...a great source for new radical steps and directions that designers and the creative industries are taking in product and environment design. --Stylus Magazine

Design Futures is an exhilarating ride into the future and beyond... --Embody 3D
