Beschreibung

Klappentext

Cooper Hewitt possesses one of the most diverse and comprehensive collections of design works in existence and is the only museum in the United States devoted exclusively to historic and contemporary design. Reopening in late 2014, the museum has undergone a transformative renovation. Its landmark home in the Andrew Carnegie Mansion offers an entirely new and interactive visitor experience resulting in 60 percent more gallery space. To mark the occasion, Cooper Hewitt is publishing an expansive book on its unparalleled collection, which consists of more than 200,000 objects from all over the world, spanning 30 centuries. Designed by Irma Boom, and a wonderful design object in itself at over 700 pages, the book expresses the museum's primary goal--to inspire people to see how design impacts their lives. The print edition is bundled with a digital version providing multidimensional ways to experience the collection. This user-centered approach is reinforced throughout the pages with 55 narratives and an extensive process glossary that discusses individual objects through a design lens. The book's emphasis is on people, purpose and making--the collective nature of design. Featuring more than 900 collection objects selected by the curatorial staff, Smithsonian Design Library and renowned designer Irma Boom, Making Design is organized entirely by Boom's visual sequencing of images; her design and the curators' essays weave parallel narratives throughout the book. This wildly playful and unexpected jaunt through the collection embraces the user-centered experiences in Cooper Hewitt's galleries.
