How must design studies be structured in order to not
only keep pace with the changes in the economy and society but also to shape them? How much artificial intelligence and coding must be conveyed during studies? This book documents five years of international research on these questions, which 250 designers participated in worldwide.The iF Design Foundation is dedicated as a non-profit organisation to design as a phenomenon and practice in the context of education and culture, science and the economy, politics and society. It promotes the development of design-specific discourses and supports the sharing of design-relevant knowledge and findings.
Professional design has never been as important and par for the course as today. Pioneering and exceptional design achievements are at the centre of Focus Open 2020, one of the most renowned German design competitions with an international orientation. For many years, the competition has been an exclusive platform for companies and professional designers from all around the world – from industrial heavyweights to small companies.
The yearbook presents all the prize-winning products of 2020. The award winners come from e.g. the sectors of investment goods, healthcare, bathrooms, kitchens, interiors, lifestyle, lighting, consumer electronics, leisure, building technology, public design, mobility, service design and materials & surfaces. Focus Open, the state prize of the Baden-Württemberg state, shows what is state-of-the-art in terms of design, innovation and sustainability.Search inside on ISSUU.com
A bench for breastfeeding in public space, a hijab for competitive sports, a bicycle saddle that is easy on the prostate. Boys prefer blue and girls love pink? What does gender have to do with design? And what is design "for all"?
On the search for answers to these questions, the publication takes a look at various aspects of our everyday life: public space, playing and education, medicine and health, cosmetics and household. The juxtaposition of contemporary and historical design stances, of critical, playful, innovative and provoking solutions of applied design research and results from extensive cooperations afford insights into a multilayered topic.Search inside on ISSUU.com

Computational design is a post-disciplinary pursuit that operates at the intersection of science, engineering, architecture, and design. What new strategies, tools, methods, and workfl ows for conceptualising, generating and producing the built environment do and can computational designers use? Do new opportunities to enhance design agency and realise more sustainable and resilient built environment design outcomes exist when thinking through technology? How can the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry overcome technical, economic, social, cultural, and regulatory barriers to implement new systems and processes?"Computational Design – From Promise to Practice" argues that to realise the full potential of computational design necessitates an approach that brings theory andresearch inquiry into closer dialogue with the realities and conditions of the design, delivery, and production of the built and urban environment as well as its livedexperiences. This book documents an action-research approach that underpins the Computational Design Education and Research program at the University of New South Wales, Australia and that simultaneously combines theory and practice, researchers and industry practioners, and action and refl ection. The innovative range of theoretical positions and projects presented here demonstrate how a synergistic approach to transforming real-world industry challenges into academic research inquiries and learning opportunities can in turn positively transform the AEC industry and 21st century cities.The editors: Dr Nicole Gardner is a Lecturer in the Bachelor of Computational Design, in the Faculty of the Built Environment, University of New South Wales, Sydney. She is an Australian Registered Architect with architecture practice experience in Adelaide, London, and Sydney. Her research and teaching engages an interdisciplinary range of ideas to investigate the changing relationships between digital and computational technologies and the design, delivery and production of the built environment.Associate Professor M. Hank Haeusler is the founder and Discipline Director of the Bachelor of Computational Design – the world’s first undergraduate degree in Computational Design – at the Built Environment Faculty at the University of New South Wales. He is also Professor at the Central Academy of Fine Arts Beijing and Vice President of the Media Architecture Institute. Dr. Yannis Zavoleas is an Architect Engineer licenced in Greece. He is Senior Lecturer in Computational Design at the Faculty of Built Environment, University of New South Wales, where he focuses on the influences of computing and digital and analogue tools as "tools for thought" in design creativity.Theory and practice of a groundbreaking and emergent technology, including case studies by leading researchers: BIM modeling, digital fabrication, smart cities, responsive enviroment, gaming.

A Card Game for Design Lovers
How many cubic meters does the little Michelin man actually take up? What insurance value does the potato peeler Rex have and how fragile is Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s Dr. Komplex? The designer pack of cards “The Happy Collector” shows 52 objects from the design and decorative arts collection at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, selected by the curators Renate Menzi and Sabine Flaschberger.
Playfully – as a classical card game or top trumps – it presents not only the favorite objects and collection highlights of the museum, but also conveys important aspects of the collection procedure: from purchase, storage and handling to insurance and documentation.
The Museum für Gestaltung Zürich is the leading museum for design and visual communication in Switzerland. The collection of international importance comprises around 500,000 objects from the areas of decorative arts, textiles, graphics, typography, as well as poster, furniture and product design.
Design as Process – On the Creation of Writing UtensilsHow are products and everyday items created, which their owners like to use, value greatly and identify with? Things with a high practical value and that are functional, durable and beautiful. Based on the writing utensils by lamy, the catalog shows an example of the complex design process behind creating a product, including models and sketches by Phoenix Design, Wolfgang
Fabian, Sieger Design, Naoto Fukasawa, Richard Sapper or Franco Clivio.
