New Product Design | Author: Wang Shaoqiang

This book showcases different types of products and industrial designs for the household and personal use, introducing projects from all over the world.

While most books about product design are structured like a textbook and explain how to design or deconstruct designs to better understand the processes involved, almost none provide a comprehensive overview of current design trends, instead offering a summary of modernist design history or the best designs from 1945 until the present. New Product Design is an exception to the rule. Through a wide range of stylistically and aesthetically bold designs, the book emphasizes the essential interaction between humans and objects. For without humans, we are told, objects are useless, empty and, ultimately, meaningless. And for an object to have meaning, we must interact act with it, use it, or, in the case of visually pleasing objects, react to them. In the pages of this book, the reader will encounter many daring examples of product design and products that interact with users in a multitude of ways, with the power to inspire new thoughts and ideas.
