Anlässlich der Graz UNESCO City of Design gestaltet die FH Joanneum jährlich eine hochkarätig besetzte Vortragsreihe. Sie beleuchtet unterschiedliche Aspekte des internationalen Designdiskurses. Erstmals in diesem Rahmen wurde auch ein Symposium organisiert. Die Präsentationen bilden die Basis des Buches Sozio-Design. Während die funkelnde Warenästhetik sich zur Bildung eines modernen „Ego-Images" aufdrängt, gibt es eine Design-Entwicklung abseits des Konsumzwangs, welche die soziale Relevanz der Gestaltung von kulturellen Objekten in den Blick nimmt: Sozio-Design erhält in Zeiten sozialer Umbrüche vermehrt Aufmerksamkeit. Das Buch zeigt sechs realisierte Design-Beiträge, die durch eine Neuordnung sozialer Interaktionen stabilisierend und ausgleichend wirken.

As a cultivated form of invention, product design is a deeply human phenomenon that enables us to shape, modify and alter the world around us – for better or worse. The recent emergence of the sustainability imperative in product design compels us to recalibrate the parameters of good design in an unsustainable age. Written by designers, for designers,?the Routledge Handbook of Sustainable Product Design presents the first systematic overview of the burgeoning field of sustainable product design. Brimming with intelligent viewpoints, critical propositions, practical examples and rich theoretical analyses, this book provides an essential point of reference for scholars and practitioners at the?intersection of product design and sustainability. The book takes readers to the depth of our engagements with the designed world to advance the social and ecological purpose of product design as a critical twenty-first-century practice. Comprising 35 chapters across 6 thematic parts, the book’s contributors include the most significant international thinkers in this dynamic and evolving field.
