The Senses: Design Beyond Vision, Ellen Lupton & Andrea Lipps

A powerful reminder to anyone who thinks design is primarily a visual pursuit, The Senses accompanies a major exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum that explores how space, materials, sound, and light affect the mind and body.

Learn how contemporary designers, including Petra Blaisse, Bruce Mau, Malin+Goetz and many others, engage sensory experience. Multi-sensory design can solve problems and enhance life for everyone, including those with sensory disabilities.

Featuring thematic essays on topics ranging from design for the table to tactile graphics, tactile sound, and visualising the senses, this book is a call to action for multi-sensory design practice.

The Senses: Design Beyond Vision is mandatory reading for students and professionals working in diverse fields, including product design, interiors, graphics, interaction, sound, animation, and data visualisation, or anyone seeking the widest possible understanding of design.

The book, designed by David Genco with Ellen Lupton, is edited by Lupton and curator Andrea Lipps.

Includes essays by Lupton, Lipps, Christopher Brosius, Hansel Bauman, Karen Kraskow, Binglei Yan, and Simon Kinnear.
