There currently exists an abundance of materials selection advice for designers suited to solving technical product requirements. In contrast, a stark gap can be found in current literature that articulates the very real personal, social, cultural and economic connections between materials and the design of the material world. In Materials Experience: fundamentals of materials and design, thirty-four of the leading academicians and experts, alongside 8 professional designers, have come together for the first time to offer their expertise and insights on a number of topics common to materials and product design. The result is a very readable and varied panorama on the world of materials and product design as it currently stands. Contributions by many of the most prominent materials experts and designers in the field today, with a foreword by Mike Ashby The book is organized into 4 main themes: sustainability, user interaction, technology and selection Between chapters, you will find the results of interviews conducted with internationally known designers. These ‘designer perspectives’ will provide a ‘time out’ from the academic articles, with emphasis placed on fascinating insights, product examples and visuals

If you aim to design a particular user experience, the material properties of the object may play a decisive role in being successful. Would the lightweight car door give you the proper impression of a luxury car? And does a perfectly polished doorknob feel natural? Maybe not. Materials can feel artificial, sound reliable, and (can make a product) look ‘cool’, they can be just pleasant to touch or look at, and cause us to experience disgust, admiration or surprise. In

Materials Experience 2: Expanding Territories of Materials and Design is the follow-up companion to Materials Experience published in 2014. Materials experience as a concept has evolved substantially and is now mobilized to incorporate new ways of thinking and designing. Through all-new peer-reviewed chapters and project write-ups, the book presents critical perspectives on new and emerging relationships between designers, materials, and artifacts. Subtitled Expanding Territories of Materials and Design, the book examines in depth the increased prevalence of material-driven design practices, as well

To meet the needs and desires of end users, design teams must select materials in a manner that thoughtfully balances functional and expressive product concerns. For functional concerns, materials information and selection tools of a technical nature, intended for use by engineers, are somewhat reluctantly adopted. For expressive concerns, designers usually rely on personal or company experiences, since no commercially available material selection tools exist. This chapter elaborates on the need to provide design teams – and industrial designers specifically – with

Materials are like words. The more materials you get in touch with, the more solutions you can see and express. In traditional design methodologies for product development materials are often considered at a later stage, resulting in only a few “good” materials being considered defined by the limitations of costs and manufacturing requirements. Bringing materials at the early stage of the design process makes it possible to review a bigger variety of materials and explore its qualities. Exploring materials at

Materials play an important role in the sensory experience of products. The visual impression (color, gloss, pattern), tactual feeling (warmth, texture, weight), the sound (acoustical properties), smell and – when relevant - taste all depend on the material. Each material has a set of inherent material properties that affect a user's experience. Even though the senses are usually employed simultaneously, visual experience is prominent in material experience, partly because it is often the first modality to observe material characteristics. Nevertheless, the

Products are the result of the delicate touch of a craftsperson or demonstrate how a designer has mastered highly mechanized production. There is an opportunity for new material experiences to be explored and defined. Designers can lead this process, combining the technical and emotional aspects of material development, to create richer, more meaningful and future relevant product experiences. This chapter will explore some of the most exciting collisions between design, engineering and material science, whereby the practical and creative aspects

Novel materials tend to prevent all forms of change in time and acquisition of signs of aging, which may affect their ‘perfect’ aesthetic qualities. It would not be wrong to claim that technological developments, the predominance of automation processes and quality controls have led - and been driven by - a trend favoring the dominance of an aesthetic model tied to perfection in every sphere of human life: the body, the style of life, products, and their materials. Such an

Teaching engineering to industrial designers is an exciting challenge. The lengthy, manifold ways to develop competencies in materials within the wide-ranging, eclectic population of designers began at the Politecnico di Milano in 1993, when the first Industrial Design School was founded in Italy. Since the days that iron-carbon diagrams spread panic among freshmen, a great deal of work has been done; today we can proudly observe the birth of many different educational models for teaching materials. This chapter analyzes and classifies

Materiality is known to be a critical dimension in the design of products and environments, yet the influence of material properties on the user experience is not well understood. A collection of examples produced by representatives of the current Japanese design vanguard reveals an astute understanding of audience expectations of material behaviors. By intentionally manipulating the expected material properties in their designs, these practitioners demonstrate the extent to which the act of transforming material characteristics can elevate user consciousness.

This chapter will describe an investigation initiated in 1994 into the sustainable development of materials and the design process and show how this led eventually to the natural development of a physical, sustainable materials resource. It will consider the value of materials that are often thrown away and look at the creative potential of these new, less non-renewable, resource hungry materials. Interviews with designers, manufacturers, retail outlets and government from Europe, Asia and the USA form the basis of case studies.

The term “Sustainability” has evolved during the last four decades to encompass 3 major aspects: Social-, Economic-, and Environmental sustainability. During the same period, the world has focused, however, mainly on economic sustainability. Rapid economic growth has resulted in enormous material prosperity, but also in a substantial increase in environmental impacts and a rapid depletion of material resources. To provide a high quality of life for a predicted world population of nine billion in 2050, the neglected aspect: social sustainability deserves urgent

Here we discuss multidisciplinary work on a sensoaesthetic theory of materials, studying and unraveling the interconnected nature of how we perceive the sensorial aspects of materials in relation to core physical properties. We consider the definition of material from scientific and artistic perspectives, and describe how experiments undertaken by a multidisciplinary team within the Institute of Making worked to draw these sides together in a coherent and productive fashion. The relationship between the objects created for studying the sound and

Biological materials cover the same range of physical properties as technical materials, and they are commonly more durable. They have the advantage that they are made of fewer components and are easily recycled. Their effectiveness relies on self-assembly of liquid crystalline structures whose molecules are stiffened by inter- or intra-molecular bonding rather than by high-energy internal bonding. Biomimetic materials cannot properly mimic such synthetic processes and use machines to assemble structures, but there are ways in which such molecular assemblies

Car bodies made by spider silk proteins, furniture made from fish scales, lightweight panels made of bamboo rings or light reflecting concrete: these are just some of the most striking examples of a development that will take on a revolutionary character in the near future. Natural biomass, lightweight materials and smart material concepts that incorporate an additional inner quality are becoming more and more prevalent. The world seems to be undergoing radical change. Materials are becoming more natural, healthier and
