Description

Whether it is the effects of climate change, the avalanche of electronic and plastic waste or the substandard living and working conditions of billions of our fellow global citizens, our ability to deal with unsustainability will define the 21st Century. Given that most consumption is mediated through products and services, the critical question for designers is, how can we radically reshape these into tools for sustainable living? As a guide and reference text, Product Design and Sustainability provides designers with the breadth and depth needed to integrate the most appropriate sustainable strategies into their practice. It establishes the principles that underpin sustainability and introduces a diverse range of social, economic and environmental design responses and tools available to designers. The numerous real-world examples illustrate how these strategies play out in different product sectors and reinforce the view that sustainability is the most positive opportunity and creative challenge facing designers today. This book: delivers a comprehensive guide to the principles of sustainability and how they apply to product design provides the depth and breadth needed for formulating and developing sustainable design strategies across different product sectors empowers and inspires designers to engage with sustainability through its strong visual design and many real-world examples and revealing interviews includes over 300 high quality colour illustrations including diagrams, graphs, and supporting key point summaries, annotated resources, further reading suggestions, and glossaryã
