Designers of objects are pivotal in an interdisciplinary trade. However different designers may be, basic knowledge of the five main thematic pillars on which each product is built is indispensable: material, construction, function, meaning and market. Knowledge of these pillars helps the designer to critically develop and evaluate his product, but also when answering questions such as: 'What do I want to create and how?','What is my fascination?', 'How do I relate to the world, and which place do I want to occupy in it?'

The richly illustrated book's many historical and current examples offer inspiration, and help in a critical way to make a choice between different design principles and research methods, so that your own fascinations can be deepened.
