Item description for Offjects: Concepts and Designs for a New Century by Oscar Guayabero...

This book presents objects from the 21st Century by Spanish designers of the 21st century. This publication is motivated by the conviction that the concept of the object, as such, has been left behind. The universe of objects, or perhaps we would have to say of "offjects," put forward here is that of the work of those generation that graduated after the Barcelona Olympics: from 1992 into these first few years of the 21st century. What seems clear is that the classic definition of "design" has been rendered obsolete. In the first place because an object's conceptual and narrative charge largely determines its material and physical configuration, and in second place, because many present-day pieces are not produced industrially - some because their designers chose not to, others because they seem not to fit into excessively conservative industrial set-ups. What does seem to be the case is that we are dealing with a new typology of designer, more open, more multidisciplinary and more remote from the traditional commercial circuit, which is not to say remote from the market.
