De vijf pijlers van design – Jeroen van den Eijnde & Hans Ansems


Designers of objects are pivotal in an interdisciplinary trade. However different designers may be, basic knowledge of the five main thematic pillars on which each product is built is indispensable: material, construction, function, meaning and market. Knowledge of these pillars helps the designer to critically develop and evaluate his product, but also when answering questions such as: ‘What do I want to create and how?’,’What is my fascination?’, ‘How do I relate to the world, and which place do I want to occupy in it?’


The richly illustrated book’s many historical and current examples offer inspiration, and help in a critical way to make a choice between different design principles and research methods, so that your own fascinations can be deepened.
