Design by use : the everyday metamorphosis of things by Uta Brandes( )

29 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No matter how competent and professional a design may be, it only comes into its own through use. More often than not things change throughout this process: clotheslines are turned into diaries, chairs become shelves, plastic bags are used as umbrellas, lampposts are transformed into notice boards, and stairs make for excellent places to eat, hang out, and communicate." "These acts of repurposing - also referred to as "Non-Intentional Design"--Can themselves become sources for the generation of new design concepts. Throughout this long-term study the three authors have collected a wealth of material. Using numerous examples this book examines the motives and the potential of "Non-Intentional Design" and makes these aspects available for further design research."--Jacket
My desk is my castle : exploring personalisation cultures by Uta Brandes( )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The desk is a place of work and of action, but it also serves as a place to exhibit personal things and preferences.Thus it always characterizes in two ways a material and symbolic unity. The desk is not only very informative in itself, but also must always be studied and understood in the context of its cultural, gender-specific, and field-related surroundings. The focus of this study is a comparative analysis of the use of desks. Desks in insurance companies, banks, administrative authorities, call centers, and design studios in twelve countries on all continents were studied. This publication presents the results in the form of extensive visual material, empirical analyses, and critical essays. The study was carried out by the Koln International School of Design (KISD) in collaboration with universities in Hong Kong; New York; Seoul; Taipei; Curitiba, Brazil; Pune, India; Auckland; Milan; and Fukuoka, Japan."

Non intentional design by Uta Brandes( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Non Intentional Design defies all standards, is subversivley and beautiful and part of all cultures. The book shows, how people can modify very banal things due to creative use. NID deals with norms which are "abnormally" transformed - every day, everywhere, by everyone. It is about the use and the exploitation of objects already designed. Amazing, funny and inspiring things arise, and a totally new point of view on well known workaday things evolves
