Materials Experience Book Review:

There currently exists an abundance of materials selection advice for designers suited to solving technical product requirements. In contrast, a stark gap can be found in current literature that articulates the very real personal, social, cultural and economic connections between materials and the design of the material world. In Materials Experience: fundamentals of materials and design, thirty-four of the leading academicians and experts, alongside 8 professional designers, have come together for the first time to offer their expertise and insights on a number of topics common to materials and product design. The result is a very readable and varied panorama on the world of materials and product design as it currently stands. Contributions by many of the most prominent materials experts and designers in the field today, with a foreword by Mike Ashby The book is organized into 4 main themes: sustainability, user interaction, technology and selection Between chapters, you will find the results of interviews conducted with internationally known designers. These ‘designer perspectives’ will provide a ‘time out’ from the academic articles, with emphasis placed on fascinating insights, product examples and visuals

Materials Experience Book Review:

If you aim to design a particular user experience, the material properties of the object may play a decisive role in being successful. Would the lightweight car door give you the proper impression of a luxury car? And does a perfectly polished doorknob feel natural? Maybe not. Materials can feel artificial, sound reliable, and (can make a product) look ‘cool’, they can be just pleasant to touch or look at, and cause us to experience disgust, admiration or surprise. In this chapter, we will look into these various ways in which materials can be experienced, ranging from the meanings we attribute to them, the aesthetic pleasure we obtain from perceiving them, and the emotions they may evoke in the context of a designed object. The goal of designing an intended (material) experience must be grounded in an understanding of the processes that underlie people’s material experiences more generally.

Materials Experience Book Review:

To meet the needs and desires of end users, design teams must select materials in a manner that thoughtfully balances functional and expressive product concerns. For functional concerns, materials information and selection tools of a technical nature, intended for use by engineers, are somewhat reluctantly adopted. For expressive concerns, designers usually rely on personal or company experiences, since no commercially available material selection tools exist. This chapter elaborates on the need to provide design teams – and industrial designers specifically – with improved materials selection tools, within the general remit of designing for product experience. Central to the argumentation is the proposition of what may be termed ‘user-centered materials selection’, for which four prototypical materials selection tools are presented. The chapter concludes that industrial designers should be encouraged to activate a personal material inspiration journey for their projects, prior to adopting any procedural material selection process typical of engineering.

Materials Experience 2 Book Review:

Materials Experience 2: Expanding Territories of Materials and Design offers a broad panorama of strong theoretical concepts and illustrative case studies surrounding the unique characteristics of emerging materials. These materials provide designers with new avenues for creating meaningful and effective products. The book explores how 'emerging materials' change the way we live and experience everyday products and change the way designers work with materials. Alongside theoretical chapters, a number of illustrative cases from renowned design practitioners are presented, thus making sustainability and the creation of unique materials the ultimate goal. Presents both the knowledge and understanding of what 'new and emerging materials' are, where they come from, and how they can be used effectively in design Looks at how the professional responsibility of material selection is evolving into a more complex and active role of material 'creation' and 'appropriation' Explores how an elevated sensitivity to materials influence people's experiences of the designed world

Materials Experience Book Review:

Newly developed materials have long been a source of both inspiration and opportunity for designers. It is hard to imagine, for example, a design world without plastics—themselves once a new material. More recently, developments in carbon fiber and other technologies have made products stronger, lighter, and easier to use. User-oriented devices based on material-related developments in the electronics world—ranging from chips and storage media to interactive touch screens—have literally revolutionized social and business fabrics.

Materials Experience Book Review:

The designer plays an important part in choosing and using materials, and in the perspective of environmental sustainability design choices should be aimed at materials causing the lowest environmental impact. This assumption, that seems almost a triviality, needs to be seen in a systemic approach: it is mandatory to refer to the life cycle of the product and to its functional unit, in other terms choosing and using materials within a product Life Cycle Design approach. Furthermore such an approach could fit well in Product-Service System business models, capable of decoupling the economic and competitive interest for an increase in resources consumption and more in general an increase in environmental impact. Within this framework an introduction to the product Life Cycle Design is given at first, followed by the description of a material selection in such an approach, finally the conclusions, will frame material selection in system approach to design for sustainability..

Materials Experience Book Review:

Novel materials tend to prevent all forms of change in time and acquisition of signs of aging, which may affect their ‘perfect’ aesthetic qualities. It would not be wrong to claim that technological developments, the predominance of automation processes and quality controls have led - and been driven by - a trend favoring the dominance of an aesthetic model tied to perfection in every sphere of human life: the body, the style of life, products, and their materials. Such an aesthetic model tied to perfection can only be obtained with brand-new products and it inevitably encourages the possession of a ‘new’ one even if the ‘old’ one is still fully functional. As stated earlier by the pioneers in the design for sustainability domains, following such an aesthetic model stimulating the possession of the ‘new’ is a great threat to sustainable development. Founded in these discussions, in this chapter we address the implementation of a new approach to material aesthetics, based on imperfection and graceful aging. We discuss how both of these concepts can be used as a medium to express naturalness and uniqueness, and how they can create added values that can evoke longer-term attachment to products.

Materials Experience Book Review:

Lightweight design is often associated with the application of lightweight materials, but that is only part of the story. In fact, if one would reduce the one to the other, the most probable outcome will be just a very modest weight saving, gained at a very high price. This chapter aims to tell the full story of how lightweight materials fit within lightweight design, presented in the form of seven design rules. In doing so, it reveals several surprising materials that designers can use to make things – parts, products, structures – lighter, and shows why lightweight design matters, more now than ever before.

Materials Experience Book Review:

During the user-product interaction process, tactile feeling of materials plays a vital role. This chapter starts from understanding the essence of texture beyond the visual domain, explores the perception dimensions of material textures via the sense of touch, i.e., geometrical dimension, physical-chemical dimension, emotional dimension and associative dimension. The concept and method of optimum texture design will be discussed, where the correlations between the perception dimensions and the relationships between subjective feelings and underlying physical properties or parameters of materials are brought to attention. To bring the findings of the research into practical application within design projects, a material-aesthetics database has been developed.

Materials Experience Book Review:

Materials are like words. The more materials you get in touch with, the more solutions you can see and express. In traditional design methodologies for product development materials are often considered at a later stage, resulting in only a few “good” materials being considered defined by the limitations of costs and manufacturing requirements. Bringing materials at the early stage of the design process makes it possible to review a bigger variety of materials and explore its qualities. Exploring materials at the fuzzy front end has the character of an ongoing research in understanding the available materials and processes that surround us. Besides the potential to inspire designers with unexpected materials-driven solutions, exploring materials can be an effective tool for business to make more strategic use of materials for future products. This article focuses on the use of materials to inspire ideas (instead of realizing ideas) to make design more creative, more sustainable and more competitive.

Materials Experience Book Review:

Car bodies made by spider silk proteins, furniture made from fish scales, lightweight panels made of bamboo rings or light reflecting concrete: these are just some of the most striking examples of a development that will take on a revolutionary character in the near future. Natural biomass, lightweight materials and smart material concepts that incorporate an additional inner quality are becoming more and more prevalent. The world seems to be undergoing radical change. Materials are becoming more natural, healthier and more sustainable. The design sector has been the most active in discovering the possibilities inherent in these innovative materials through the development of a new product culture whose most important aspect is sustainability. Designers prepare the ground for promising innovative materials to enter the marketplace and, through dialogue with manufacturers, foster the development of new material or come up with problem solving materials on their own. In this chapter, we provide an overview of developments in the bio-based and sustainable material sector as well as in the fields of lightweight construction solutions and intelligent materials.

Materials Experience Book Review:

Materials play an important role in the sensory experience of products. The visual impression (color, gloss, pattern), tactual feeling (warmth, texture, weight), the sound (acoustical properties), smell and – when relevant - taste all depend on the material. Each material has a set of inherent material properties that affect a user's experience. Even though the senses are usually employed simultaneously, visual experience is prominent in material experience, partly because it is often the first modality to observe material characteristics. Nevertheless, the sensitivity for the other senses should not be neglected. Whereas vision provides users with the first impressions, the specific characteristics perceived through other modalities help in shaping the overall experience. The multisensory experience of warmth is used as an example to illustrate the individual impacts related to the use of different sensory modalities and to discuss how the senses work together in creating experiences that are coherent or involve incongruities.

Materials Experience Book Review:

This chapter will focus not so much on “what” we do as consumers, but “why” we do it, leading to a broader evolutionary and behavioral discourse on the meaning and role of objects in our lives, drawing into focus the essential relationship between our enduring need for material experiences, and the impacts this has on the natural world. This chapter examines the meaningful proxies, triggers, and metaphors embedded within material experiences, exposing alternative understandings of the immaterial culture underpinning our stuff, and the manifold dialogues we are continually engaged in with the designed objects that touch our lives.
