Product Design and Sustainability: Strategies, Tools, and Practice

Product Design and Sustainability: Strategies, Tools, and Practice

Jane Penty  (Author)
Whether it is the effects of climate change, the avalanche of electronic and plastic waste or the substandard living and working conditions of billions of our fellow global citizens, our ability to deal with unsustainability will define the 21st Century. Given that most consumption is mediated through products and services, the critical question for designers is, how can we radically reshape these into tools for sustainable living?

As a guide and reference text, Product Design and Sustainability provides design students, practitioners and educators with the breadth and depth needed to integrate the most appropriate sustainable strategies into their practice. It establishes the principles that underpin sustainability and introduces a diverse range of social, economic and environmental design responses and tools available to designers. The numerous real-world examples illustrate how these strategies play out in different product sectors and reinforce the view that sustainability is the most positive opportunity and creative challenge facing designers today.

This book:

delivers a comprehensive guide to the principles of sustainability and how they apply to product design that can readily be integrated into curricula and design practice

reveals many of the issues that specific product sectors are facing and provides the depth and breadth needed for formulating and developing sustainable design strategies to address these

empowers and inspires designers to engage with sustainability through its many examples and insightful interviews with practitioners

is fully illustrated with over 300 photographs, graphs and diagrams and supported by chapter summaries, annotated further reading suggestions, and glossary.
