9780811835480: Ecodesign: The Sourcebook
Alas, environmentally friendly design hasnt always meant high style. Confronting that challenge head on, ecoDesign lists well over 500 consumer products for those who seek design thats not only beautiful and useful, but also has minimal impact on the earth. Some of these pieces-from clothing to kitchenware, electronics, furniture, and much, much more-have already become classics. But this remarkable sourcebook also guides readers to undiscovered gems and handcrafted objects from artisanal studios. Detailed illustrated entries describe the products themselves, while an extensive reference section defines these new and hybrid materials and provides information on manufacturers, design studios, green organizations, and a further reading list. ecoDesign is the total resource guide for a new generation of contemporary design.

About the Author:
Alastair Fuad-Luke is a teacher of green design at Falmouth College of Arts, England, and is a consultant to numerous international companies on ecological issues.
Review:
There are more than 700 reasons to recommend "Eco Design," a 352-page compendium of environmentally sensible products. That's how many "green" designs are included in this enlightening sourcebook.
Design groupies will recognize artfully recycled furnishings, including Tejo Remy's impromptu chest made of drawers salvaged from junk shops, and Jurgen Bey's garden bench made of compressed dried grass. But the book's universe of products extends to solar-powered cellular highway call boxes, a shatterproof CD case that requires 46 percent less energy in manufacturing than conventional models, and a robotic lawn mower. Innovative building materials include recycled cedar-look shakes, bamboo flooring, water-saving appliances and solar panels.
The book (Chronicle, $35) was compiled by Alastair Fuad-Luke, a professor of ecological design at the Falmouth College of Arts in Britain. The profusion of products on the market today is the prof's way of answering the question: Can we design a sustainable future?
To live the waste-not, want-not dream, memorize the list of contacts at the back of the book. -Washington Post
