Designing for Energy Awareness
The product of a Swedish Interactive Institute symposium, this engrossing reader asks us to re-think the form and future of electricity. Though much of our modern lifestyle is powered by electricity, the energy itself is largely invisible, and today its economic and environmental costs require us to think again about how we use it and waste it. With a thought-provoking collection of texts, drawings, photos, schematics and charts, this book explores how the design process can increase awareness of energy, re-interpreting familiar furnishings and products to make the use of electricity more visible. Grounded in passion and humor, rigor and research, the book asks designers and consumers – that is, all of us – to look at the future of energy use in a new way.
