Material Revolution – Sustainable Multi-Purpose Materials for Designs

Since it is now clear that in the future many raw materials will only be available to us in limited quantities, scientists have for some time been conducting intensive research into possible alternatives. Sustainability is the order of the day and the magic word for a better future in politics and industry. Moreover, environmental consciousness and a penchant for thinking in terms of material cycles have caught on with consumers : the use of environmentally compatible materials and production methods is desired, even taken for granted by the client. Designers and architects thus have a special role and responsibility. For they are the ones who decide what materials will be used on their projects and thus wield enormous influence on the sustainability of our product world. 2011, 208 Seiten/pages, Sprache/language: english, 64,00 Euro for the english edition.

‘Collection: Offices’ – The State of the Art

The demands on offices have been transformed by the 21st century digital revolution. As a result, designers have been given a unique opportunity to blend functionality with pure style in the construction of office buildings and spaces. Whether striving for a minimalist, sophisticated or more light-hearted effect, architects are freed to create inspirational interior environments. These interiors are often matched by striking exterior facades that convey a dynamic and exciting concept of the company within. The book gives an overview of the ‘state of the art’ like the tradeshow ORGATEC where trend-books offer a special range of books for professionals.
