In the rage of e-books and information overflow from the internet, now people (me) are getting more and more selective with hard copies that they bought. And this book, in my opinion, is one of those books worth buying.
I'd buy it for my personal collection, and to appreciate the featured inventors/ designers and honor them for designing something that really works, and made a whole lot of sense too!
This is one of my favorite design, the Playground Fence by Tejo Remy and René Veenhuizen.
The 'Design Revolution: 100 Products That Empower People' is written by Emily Pilloton, the founder and Executive Director of Project H Design, a global industrial design nonprofit with eight chapters around the world. Current Project H initiatives include water transport and filtration systems in South Africa and India; an educational math playground built for elementary schools in Uganda and North Carolina; a homeless-run design coop in Los Angeles; and design concepts for foster care education and therapy in Austin, Texas.
Well done Ma'am. Recruit me, please? :D
