The Senses: Design Beyond Vision
By Ellen Lupton & Andrea Lipps
A powerful reminder to anyone who thinks design is primarily a visual pursuit, The Senses accompanies a major 2018 exhibition at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum that explores how space, materials, sound, and light affect the mind and body. Learn how contemporary designers, including Petra Blaisse, Bruce Mau, Malin+Goetz, and many others, engage sensory experience. Multi-sensory design can solve problems and enhance life for everyone, including those with sensory disabilities. Featuring thematic essays on topics ranging from design for the table to tactile graphics, tactile sound, and visualizing the senses, this book is a call to action for multi-sensory design practice.
The Senses: Design Beyond Vision is mandatory reading for students and professionals working in diverse fields, including products, interiors, graphics, interaction, sound, animation, and data visualization, or anyone seeking the widest possible understanding of design.
Edited by Ellen Lupton and curator Andrea Lipps. With essays by Lupton, Lipps, Christopher Brosius, Hansel Bauman, Karen Kraskow, Beinglei Yan, and Simon Kinnear.
