The lavish plate section is enriched by numerous brief texts by these and other curators in the Architecture and Design department, which illuminate the entire course of modern design, its major styles, and its individual masterpieces.

"This book presents a wealth of contemporary design products and prototypes from all over the world that address the issues of protection and security in our everyday lives. The objects are as diverse as our notions of safety and well-being: headgear designed to withstand either a fall from a bicycle or the blast of a bomb; prefabricated shelters for victims of earthquakes; self-defense and antitheft objects; clearly illustrated emergency instructions; de-mining equipment; and toys that help people with mental disabilities gain and maintain a sense of balance and identity. This broad array of examples is accompanied by texts on the home as a safety nest, on automotive safety, on new materials and technologies, and on how architects and designers can provide support and guidance in situations of extreme emergency."--BOOK JACKET

Talk to me : design and the communication between people and objects by Paola Antonelli ( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Whether openly and actively or in subtle, subliminal ways, things talk to us. As the purpose of design has, in past decades, shifted away from mere utility toward meaning, objects and systems that were once charged only with being elegant and functional now have personalities. And thanks to the digital revolution, they have become very communicative, making our world newly interactive: a wristband notifies us when we're getting dehydrated, animated creatures hide in the shadows of the objects on our desks, a wheat field calls out a salutation. Contemporary designers, in addition to giving objects form, function and meaning, now write the initial scripts that are the foundations for these useful and satisfying conversations. With nearly two hundred projects ranging from the microscopic to the cosmic, "Talk to Me: Design and the Communication between People and Objects" explores design's new terrain:enhancing, communicative possibilities, embodying a new balance between technology and people, bringing technological break-throughs up or down to comfortable, understandable human scale. These projects include interfaces, websites, video games, devices, tools, charts, and information systems, on topics global and personal. Whether we are hanging out in a social network or listening to a radio sneeze, we are partaking of a newly metaphysical and expressive layer of interaction that is already enriching our future."--P [4] of cover
