Design by Use

In stock (50 items available)
An exploration of a very special kind of design: the phenomenon in which people with no formal training in design take things that have already been designed and convert them to new uses, in short, "misuse" them in the very best sense of the word. This non-intentional design (NID) goes on every day, in every area of life, in every region of the world.
