Idea Code 18124

This publication accompanies an exhibition of eye-catching and innovative objects at the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design. It offers an introduction to the world of modern design in four sections, and focuses on materials and how they have transformed in recent years. Besides chapters on more familiar materials, such as wood, leather, glass, ceramics, metals, fibres and textiles, and stone, it also delves into the hi-tech realm of composites, polymers, and plastics. It emphasises creating new value when combining materials and processing techniques, and how having an intimate dialogue with materials is an essential part of the process of making objects.
