Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

Bridging the gap between the design of functional objects and the creation of pieces that are featured in places like the Museum of Modern Art, Alesina (environmental design, Maryland Inst. Coll. of Art [MICA]) and Lupton (graphic design, MICA; Thinking with Type) encourage designers to exploit inventively the characteristics of everyday materials, such as corrugated cardboard and plastic film. Two extensive studies on creating places to sit and methods for carrying examine novel uses of 32 materials. The authors also discuss taking prototypes into fabrication and marketing. A lively, irresistible volume. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
