Green Design colorfully documents the rising trend to create and market new and innovative products that help consumers downsize and upgrade their lives. Through a carefully chosen selection of green toys, objects, fabrics, paper and alternative energy sources, the photographs and articles in Green Design illustrate what happens when green-minded lifestyles meet well-designed, high quality products. Many of the examples in this book show how successful business plans can flourish when ecological and social responsibility are core considerations.
Though the book features color photographs of all the products mentioned – from American Apparel to Lego to Sonic Fabric to Jimi Wallets to Stupid Sock Creatures – Green Design is not a glorified catalog. It is a well-focused collection of products created by over 50 designers that exemplifies their work and the inspiration behind it.
With articles by writers who have collectively contributed to Wired, Mother Jones, NPR’s All Things Considered, Entertainment Weekly, The Asian Wall Street Journal, Print, The San Francisco Chronicle, I.D., dwell and Photo District News, Green Design is suited for designers implementing aspects of green design and consumers who want to be informed about the products they buy.
