We all live in an age of accessibility, with inspiration and resources available at our very fingertips. As a result, industrial designers are able to realize original design concepts as never before, balancing the use of new materials with environmental concerns to create innovative designs that resonate with our lifestyles. Some mimic organic shapes, while others create brand-new geometric forms. Whether re-envisioning a ladder or a picnic basket, designers breathe life into preconceived realities. This ultimate resource combines interviews with concept sketches, schematics and product photography to provide a comprehensive overview of the design process from start to finish. The book is divided into 5 sections: lamps, shelves and cabinets, tables and chairs, kitchenware and containers, and tools.
