Materials technology is the single most important agent of change in our entire designed landscape, from the buildings in which we live and work to the clothes we wear. This volume, the third in the series, features carefully selected packaging products that showcase the innovative use of a particular material. The book focuses on specific categories of packaging, functional forms, dispensing systems, advanced protection, interactive and mass craft.
The coverage of the projects is extensive, from 'plantable' packaging that can be buried in soil, later to emerge as a plant, to bottle labels that react to music and bespoke, collectible jars of Marmite XO. Seven specially commissioned 'visual narratives' by experts in the field are included. The extensive illustrated materials directory contains detailed information on over 100 materials.
