9780847836086: Usefulness in Small Things
Críticas:

""Usefulness in Small Things" (Rizzoli), by Sam Hecht and Kim Colin of the minimally minded studio Industrial Facility, is a survey of inexpensive objects collected from around the globe by the designers--from the ultra-ubiquitous to the painfully clever." "Surface"
" "
"Individual objects in the collection weren't conceived with the larger questions about design and art. Yes, these are things you use and throw away, things that are so hopelessly flawed, too. Presented as a whole, though, the collection is an interesting commentary on design--a though that makes you think, to use Hecht's phrase." dwell.com

."..it packs a large punch." "Metropolis Magazine"

"It is the best sort of design book, a volume of original information and insight garnered from real world experiences." core77.com

Reseña del editor:

Everyday, low-cost, and mass-produced items gathered from around the world showcasing innovative design. This book presents a delightful collection of mass-produced objects that provide insight into the things that surround us. Common items such as nails, plugs, toothbrushes, soap, gloves, and sweets have their own function and differ in design from country to country and region to region. Some are examples of good and practical design, while others fail to fulfill their function. The collection shows an appreciation to detail by revealing how things are made and a sensitivity to the tasks people carry out, all the while keeping in mind the basic utilitarian design of these inexpensive everyday objects. The items come from a range of countries, including the United States, Japan, France, and Thailand, and were purchased from small local shops. More than design souvenirs that celebrate local culture, they all involve an idea about function and in most cases the "designer" is unknown. The book is designed by Graphic Thought Facility and illustrated with over 150 newly commissioned photographs by Angela Moore. The objects are organized thematically, with concise captions that clarify the individual function of each item, exposing what is not always apparent from looking."
