Designing Global Choices
The worldwide trade in consumer goods has resulted in a uniformity of supply, threatening the survival of local traditions. Yet is the call to return to old ways nostalgia for the pre-globalized world, or a real and realistic impulse? Designers can play an important role in the discovery of new possibilities, according to this fascinating book from the IM Masters program at the prestigious Design Academy in Eindhoven. The multi-ethnic student population investigated traditional techniques from their own home countries and formulated design proposals that would give these techniques and traditions a place in our time. This fifth edition of Source includes essays and an interview on the theme of Designing Global Choices, as well as examples of the students’ research and design proposals.
