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.
Between chapters, you will find the results of interviews conducted with internationally known designers. These ‘designer perspectives’ will provide a ‘time out’ from the academic articles, with emphasis placed on fascinating insights, product examples and visuals

So much has been achieved and discussed in the materials and design domain in the last decade; some of which has found its place in design practice and design education, whilst soem has yet to come to the fore and remains at a level of noteworthy points to be considered for the future of our societies and material possessions. This book presents a panorama of completed works and on-going discussions that are shaping, or are predicted to shape, our materiality, the selection of materials for products, and our understanding and appreciation of product materials. Presently we are witnessing the birth of a new body of knowledge termed 'materials experience', which systematically explores not only how people react to the varied physical material properties of things, but also to the diverse expertise that designers must possess if they are to positively influence people's material reactions.About the Author:
