Read or download book entitled Materials Experience 2 written by Owain Pedgley which was release on 08 October 2021, this book published by Elsevier. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: 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

Summary : 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 ...

Summary : 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 ...

Summary : 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 ...

Summary : 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 ...

Summary : 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 ...

Summary : Product design is seen as the amalgamation of technical and industrial design in order to create successful products. All too often however, technical and industrial design is conducted separately, or the influence of industrial design ignored. All physical products are made from materials and selecting the most appropriate is a ...

Summary : Biological materials cover the same range of physical properties as technical materials, and they are commonly more durable. They have the advantage that they are made of fewer components and are easily recycled. Their effectiveness relies on self-assembly of liquid crystalline structures whose molecules are stiffened by inter- or intra-molecular ...

Summary : Products are the result of the delicate touch of a craftsperson or demonstrate how a designer has mastered highly mechanized production. There is an opportunity for new material experiences to be explored and defined. Designers can lead this process, combining the technical and emotional aspects of material development, to create ...

Summary : This chapter begins by noting the general relationship between modeling and designing. Some mathematical and visual strategies for modeling materials technology are discussed, and, in particular, the manner in which these models enhance the perceptual span of the designer is explored. The capabilities they enhance are identified and the limitations ...
