Instead of just filling a book with new products, Goods takes design publishing a step further: iconic interior design products are analyzed and featured from sketch to realization. And that's not all. This huge book also shows international reference projects where these products have been used successfully.
Each product is featured on eight pages that tell its story step by step. Profiles of the manufacturer and their associated designers provide a first framework. Conceptual design sketches, studies, technical drawings, photography of the prototypes, and the manufacturing process—alongside a clear description—explain exactly how the product is designed and manufactured. Product photography showcases the end result, and a spread filled with photos of various recently completed interiors that successfully feature the product complete the picture.
Goods features ninety products which makes it quite a hefty book with eight hundred pages. All interior product ranges are included: from chairs to tables; from floor lamps to down lights; and from kitchens to bathrooms. The included brands are selected from all over the world and are the likes of Armstrong, Gaggenau, Hansgrohe, Herman Miller, Moooi, Vitra, and Zumtobel. Featured associated designers include Barber Osgerby, Jean-Marie Massaud, Patricia Urquiola, Porsche Design Studio, and Yves Behar.
This book offers an exclusive peek into the world of both renowned brands and design studios. By explaining the design process, the manufacturing process, and the actual use of the product, Goods is valuable for anyone in the design industry, from interior designer to manufacturer, and from architect to product designer.
