Item description for Simply Material: Exploring the Potential of Materials and the Creative Competency (Simply (Victionary)) by Victionary...

In the fields of design - interior, product, industrial, fashion and architecture, no single creative element matters more than the materials used to create the product. Materials underpin all of the design criteria implemented by the designers and unequivocally influence the end result. Simply Materials presents a broad selection of objects created using a range of sophisticated new technologies and many born of traditional handcraftsmanship. This book introduces the reader to a variety of materials that can be used to create objects or art forms of great beauty in an array of irregular shapes, sizes and compositions. It demonstrates clearly how composition alone is able to liberate materials from the category of raw junk into materials that arouse great visual interest. With contributors including BOEK (PIET HEIN EEK), Tim Parsons, Sand & Birch Design, Contraforma, and many more. This is the first volume in the groundbreaking new series Simply.. From Victionary.

Reviews - What do customers think about Simply Material: Exploring the Potential of Materials and the Creative Competency (Simply (Victionary))?

Great variety with weird interesting concepts  Nov 9, 2008
Watch Video Here: http://www.this site/review/R2LLFX6RAB7LYC The quote right before the contents page: To reveal the increasing essentialness of material with a compilation of brilliant ideas, and craftsmanship.

The book is a collection of products with an emphasis on the materials used. The work for various designers are categorized into geometric, organic, decorative and illusive. The designs showcased are very unique and look like they belong to the Museum of Modern Art.

The variety is great and there are a lot of weird yet interesting concepts.
