Basics Product Design 02: Material Thoughts
Basics Product Design: Material Thoughts describes the various materials and processes available to product designers and encourages experimental approaches to product design and finishing.
The book explores the thinking of leading designers and producers who are able to challenge convention through curiosity and experimentation. Basics Product Design: Material Thoughts aims to promote a physical enquiry of materials and a mentality that constantly asks ‘what could be done if…’ – rather than considering only what is being done.
