DESIGN AND THE WONDROUS:
ON THE NATURE OF ORNAMENT
24 x 33 cm
Price: 158 lei
This volume presents a new narrative of design, situated somewhere between plant life and ornament, nature and artifice. Through essays by several authors it explores the ornament’s role with respect to morphogenesis, by which the object is continually transformed through an evolving dynamic of forms. With the arrival of the digital age, the ornament’s role in design has been greatly modified. No longer a simple motif, it is used as an animated form. At the intersection of information sciences and biology, designers utilise 3D printing to create carefully calculated objects based on organic growth. With contributions by Spyros Papapetros, Marie-Ange Brayer, and others.
