"This dictionary provides a stimulating and categorial foundation for a serious international discourse on design. It is a handbook for everyone concerned with design in career or education, who is interested in it, enjoys it, and wishes to understand it. Some 110 authors from Australia, Austria, England, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United States have written over 260 original articles for the Design Dictionary. Their cultural differences provide perspectives for a shared understanding of central design categories and communicating about design. The volume includes both the terms in use in current discussions, some of which are still relatively new, as well as classics of design discourse. A practical book, both scholarly and ideal for browsing and reading at leisure."--Book cover
My desk is my castle : exploring personalisation cultures by Susanne Dickel( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The desk is a place of work and of action, but it also serves as a place to exhibit personal things and preferences.Thus it always characterizes in two ways a material and symbolic unity. The desk is not only very informative in itself, but also must always be studied and understood in the context of its cultural, gender-specific, and field-related surroundings. The focus of this study is a comparative analysis of the use of desks. Desks in insurance companies, banks, administrative authorities, call centers, and design studios in twelve countries on all continents were studied. This publication presents the results in the form of extensive visual material, empirical analyses, and critical essays. The study was carried out by the Koln International School of Design (KISD) in collaboration with universities in Hong Kong; New York; Seoul; Taipei; Curitiba, Brazil; Pune, India; Auckland; Milan; and Fukuoka, Japan."
NERD, new experimental research in design : positions and perspectives by Michael Erlhoff( )

17 editions published in 2018 in English and German and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Design has long expressed and established itself as an independent research competence - a fact that also companies, institutions and politicians have come to acknowledge. What is still needed, however, is a stronger public platform for design to confidently reflect upon this process and to establish and communicate the specific innovative and experimental dimension of design research. For this reason, BIRD, the Board of International Research in Design, has developed the New Experimental Research in Design / NERD format. The edited conference contributions of twelve young researchers from all over the world provide an impressive and diverse and insightful range of intelligent and inspiring approaches in design research, giving rise to further debate and action in the rapidly evolving field

Non Intentional Design defies all standards, is subversivley and beautiful and part of all cultures. The book shows, how people can modify very banal things due to creative use.
