"A complete guide to beautifully conceived, ecologically sensitive and consumer-friendly furniture and objects for everyday use. Whether you are interested in design or the sustainability of our environment, building a house or looking for new furniture, whether your office is buying stationery supplies or looking for ergonomic chairs, here is a complete resource, invaluable for the broad consumer market and design professionals. The Eco-Design Handbook offers the best-designed objects for every aspect of the home and office, including environmentally sound materials and building products. Some pieces are prototypes, some have already become classics; others have been discovered from far-away or unexpected places or difficult-to-find one-person studios. The introduction puts forward the history of green design and the latest eco-design strategies, and addresses the search for international standards. Sections are devoted to detailed illustrated descriptions of furniture and objects for domestic living and for the office or work, another section is a catalogue of eco-materials, and there is a vast reference resource, including detailed listings of manufacturers, design studios and green organizations; a checklist of eco-design strategies; further reading; and a glossary of useful terms and concepts. Easy-to-use information panels and comprehensive index enable the reader to find any product, designer or manufacturer instantly." - publishers description.
