Bamboo: From Green Design to Sustainable Design

Price : $69.75
ISBN # : 9788186962909
Author : Rebecca Reubens
pages: 264
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Promilla/BSA Publishers
Published : 2012

Focuses on the links between design, craft and sustainability, expanding the scope of design and opportunities for designers. It inspires designers to move beyond green or eco-design, into the realm of holistically sustainable design by focusing on bamboo an ancient, renewable material which has recently seen a resurgence in popularity, in both design and sustainability. The book highlights bamboo s versatile applications and their impact on ecological, economic, social and cultural sustainability. The Sustainability Checklist included here will empower designers to guide and evaluate their designs and move from green design towards sustainable design. The Princ e Claus Fund supports this publication for its treatment of sustainability s many facets, unlike others that only recognize the ecological meaning. The Fund believes that culture is a basic need and the motor of development, and so actively seeks cultural collaborations founded on equality and trust, with partners of excellence, in spaces where resources and opportunities for cultural expression, creative production and research are limited and cultural heritage is threatened.



Author Bio: Rebecca Reubens trained formally as an industrial designer. She now works at the intersection of design, craft and sustainability. A large part of her work has been for the development sector, with international bodies such as INBAR and UNIDO, in Europe, Asia and Africa.

She also has her independent practice, through her design firm Rhizome, which believes that renewable materials crafted into contemporary designs are the route to holistically sustainable products. Rebecca is currently pursuing her PhD at the Design for Sustainability subprogram at the Delft University of Technology on the links between sustainability, design and development, through the medium of bamboo.
