As the globe shrinks and the concept of distance diminishes, this text challenges the current status quo by identifying the cohesions and specialisations of design communities across the continents. It sets out an international spatial design landscape, identifying and contouring global design practice and design hotspots from a range of case studies, interviews and design practice perspectives. Using a range of interior environments, the chapters link the origins, trends and perceptions of the interior to create new insight into trans-global design. The book expands, but also coheres the interior design discipline to ensure the subject continues to grow, develop and influence the inhabitations of the world.
The book features a wealth of pedagogical elements including:
Beautifully designed with over 100 full colour illustrations, photographs and examples of design work
Maps and diagrams which highlight hotspots of design across the globe, providing strong graphic information
Interview panels featuring professional insights from designers across the globe
‘Employability’ boxes, providing a good tips guide for students gaining employment across the globe
‘International Dimension’ boxes which strengthen the scholarship of studying interior design in a globalised way
‘Design Oddities’ box which brings into focus any new or contextual facts that help contextualise the global interior.
