From dwindling planetary resources to a prevalent ‘take-make-discard’ model of consumption, design has helped nurture the seeds of environmental destruction, creating unprecedented levels of waste and new forms of material scarcity. In response to these challenges, designers, scientists and makers are creating original solutions and possibilities: pioneering new technologies, crossing disciplines and promoting collaboration.
For over 13 years, Caroline Till and Kate Franklin have been exploring the role of the designer and maker in shaping the sustainable future of the material world. This year, their research culminated in the new book Radical Matter, a wide-ranging compendium of the experimental approaches, new materials and revolutionary thinkers that are re-writing design convention and creating a blueprint for a new model of production and consumption.
