Materials Experience : Fundamentals of Materials and Design, Paperback / softback Book


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.
