Alas, environmentally friendly design hasnt always meant high style. Confronting that challenge head on, ecoDesign lists well over 500 consumer products for those who seek design thats not only beautiful and useful, but also has minimal impact on the earth. Some of these pieces-from clothing to kitchenware, electronics, furniture, and much, much more-have already become classics. But this remarkable sourcebook also guides readers to undiscovered gems and handcrafted objects from artisanal studios. Detailed illustrated entries describe the products themselves, while an extensive reference section defines these new and hybrid materials and provides information on manufacturers, design studios, green organizations, and a further reading list. ecoDesign is the total resource guide for a new generation of contemporary design.
Alastair Fuad-Luke is a teacher of green design at Falmouth College of Arts, England, and is a consultant to numerous international companies on ecological issues.
