Summary
"This book explores the role of materials and manufacturing in product design. We have placed particular emphasis on how the materiality of an object (what it is made of and how it is made) can be manipulated to create aesthetics and functionality of a product. We are equally concerned with issues related to feasibility of production and the sustainability of a system. The methods presented here are supported by some 100 profiles of materials and manufacturing processes, emphasizing the attributes most relevant for product design."--BOOK JACKET
