The desk is a place of work and of action, but it also serves as a place to exhibit personal things and preferences. Thus it always characterizes in two ways a material and symbolic unity. The desk is not only very informative in itself, but also must always be studied and understood in the context of its cultural, gender-specific, and field-related surroundings. The focus of this study is a comparative analysis of the use of desks. Desks in insurance companies, banks, administrative authorities, call centers, and design studios in twelve countries on all continents were studied. This publication presents the results in the form of extensive visual material, empirical analyses, and critical essays. The study was carried out by the Koln International School of Design (KISD) in collaboration with universities in Hong Kong; New York; Seoul; Taipei; Curitiba, Brazil; Pune, India; Auckland; Milan; and Fukuoka, Japan.

Design by Use - The Everyday Metamorphosis of Things (Hardcover): Uta Brandes, Sonja Stich, Miriam Wender Design by Use - The Everyday Metamorphosis of Things (Hardcover)

R439 R397 Discovery Miles 3 970 Save R42 (10%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This publication explores and analyzes a very special kind of design - the phenomenon, as normal as it is wonderful, in which people with no formal training in design take things that have already been designed and reuse them, convert them to new uses, in short, "misuse" them in the very best sense of the word. Non-intentional design (NID) goes on every day, in every area of life, in every region of the world. Redesign through reuse makes things multifunctional and cleverly combines them to generate new functions. It is often reversible, resource-friendly, improvisational, innovative, and economical. It can become a source of inspiration for design, provided professional designers look up and take notice of what actually happens to all the things they design when they are used.

BIRD, the "Board of International Research in Design", is a forum for publications on insightful design research. BIRD is convinced that highly qualified design research is relevant: both in regards to design in its entire complexity as well as in regards to social, cultural, economic and scientific developments in our societies. BIRD publishes its works with Birkhauser. Birkhauser has not only made a name for itself in the fields of architecture and design, but also offers an excellent distribution network due to its place within the De Gruyter Publishing Group. BIRD proposes projects and texts from design research that merit publication and supervises their publication. BIRD is also constantly on the lookout for excellent presentations of significant design research.
