Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design
Shipping calculated at checkout.
Papanek's interpretation of design as a tool for social transformation is as relevant as ever and continues to shape debate within its field. The designer, author and design activist anticipated an understanding of design as a means for social good— introducing ideas that critically question design's social and ecological consequences— a set of ethics that holds true today. Through a collection of photographs, artistic works, objects, drawings and letters, the book explores Papanek's vision, drawing on expertise through his involvement in the fields of ecology, bionics, sustainability and anti-consumerism.
