|Open Design Now: Why design cannot remain exclusive|
Open Design Now: Why design cannot remain exclusive (BIS publishers, Amsterdam), by Creative Commons Netherlands, Premsela and Waag Society, examines the emerging field of open-source design and considers its impact on society, both so far and in years to come. Set to be published in early June, it includes case studies of products as diverse as the RepRap self-replicating 3D-printer and $50 prosthetic legs.
HBL loves: that authoritative design figures have been invited to have their say, including Droog's Renny Ramakers and John Thackara, director of The Doors of Perception. Subscribers can read our report on open-source design here.
