Transformation Design: Perspectives on a New Design Attitude

In stock (50 items available)
'Transformation Design' is looking for new ways to change our behaviour and society through new forms of innovation. The existing user-oriented approach of design must therefore be extended to one that is society-oriented. The book attempts to form an initial position in terms of this ambitious and ethical design perspective. It also seeks to inspire the international debate to push for a project of responsible design. The concept of transformation is based on the anthropologist Karl Paul Polanyi and his book The Great Transformation (1944), which described the emergence of the now almost undisputed and globally widespread western market logic: the transformation of societies with markets into market societies, which he calls "dislodgement of the markets".
