New Talents. State of the Arts

• Talents from Europe, USA and Asia show new values in design culture: radical, provoking, trendsetting
• Over 50 projects by Jurgen Bey, BLESS, Constantin Boym, Matali Crasset, Dunne + Raby, Marti Guixé, Kram + Weisshaar, among others
• Contributions by Volker Albus and Max Borka

Against the background of the growing mediocrity of worldwide industrial production young designers with impressive potential are coming of age who stand outside the commercial trend of endless product variations and adaptations. They are fathoming new limits of the feasible and developing border-crossing ideas whose focal points are less in their formal quality but rather in the fundamental question about added cultural value, innovation, otherness and authenticity.

The book presents these seekers of design with many pictures and explanatory articles: their cooperation with scientists, their anthropological and ecological reflections, their concern with art and with their own radical positions.

The editor Hansjerg Maier-Aichen, born 1940, studied painting and sculpture in Germany, France and the USA before founding designmark AUTHENTICS in 1983. He is executive board member of the German Design Council, visiting professor at Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London and professor for product design at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design.
