About the book:
Open design is a way of designing that everyone can participate in. The philosophy of open design is identical to that of the open source movement, but with a focus on physical products and services rather than software. Open Design Now: Why Design Cannot Remian Exclusive surveys this emerging field for the first time.

Contributors include John Thackara (Doors of Perception), Renny Ramakers (Droog Design) and Bert Mulder (adviser to Dutch ministries). They look at what's driving open design and where it is going. The book also contains a visual index and a variety of case studies ranging from RepRap - the self-replicating 3D-printer to the Instructables Restaurant and IKEA hackers. 2005-2015 - Powered by Movable Type 3.31.
