Smart Works: Design and the Handmade

$19.95

In stock

Smart Works looks at the work of over forty designers from Australia and New Zealand who are exploring the industrial production of their work while maintaining the integrity of the ‘handmade’, often combining traditional skills with new designing and manufacturing technologies.

Three essays by Grace Cochrane, Ewan McEoin and Douglas Lloyd Jenkins provide historical, conceptual, regional and economic frameworks to understand this shift in the making process for individual designers.

The cases studies on each of the designers – written by experts in the field – document the many and varied ways the designers have researched solutions and made decisions, from working in personal studios, to establishing close working relationships with local specialist industries or making new connections with changing global manufacturing opportunities overseas.

Beautifully illustrated, Smart Works will appeal to anyone who is interested in contemporary design.
