Description
Information
An unprecedented exploration of Design Art and how overtly functional objects can be made to carry meanings and associations, or 'tell tales'.

The links between contemporary design, history and the imagination form the background for this beautiful and unique exploration of Design Art. Addressing works by such designers as Jurgen Bey, Tord Boontje, Dunne and Raby and Studio Job, Gareth Williams explores how overtly functional objects, 'designed' objects, can be made to carry meanings and associations, or tell tales. As contemporary design practice, the art market and art itself become more integrated, reflecting the merging of art, craft and design, this exciting book offers a valuable and perceptive assessment of our ability to read design art objects with the critical tools traditionally associated with painting, sculpture and literary theory.
