Textile Technology and Design addresses the critical role of the interior at the intersection of design and technology, with a range of interdisciplinary arguments by a wide range of contributors: from design practitioners to researchers and scholars to aerospace engineers. Chapters examine the way in which textiles and technology – while seemingly distinct – continually inform each other through their persistent overlapping of interests, and eventually coalesce in the practice of interior design. Covering all kinds of interiors from domestic (prefabricated kitchens and 3D wallpaper) to extreme (underwater habitats and space stations), it features a variety of critical aspects including pattern and ornament, domestic technologies, craft and the imperfect, gender issues, sound and smart textiles. This book is essential reading for students of textile technology, textile design and interior design.

Architecture is defined by its materials and surfaces. Not infrequently, it is their look and feel that determine whether a project succeeds or fails. For this reason, it is crucially important that planners choose the right materials and use them correctly, a task that is especially challenging today, when they are confronted with an almost dizzying variety of design possibilities and almost unlimited industrial production techniques. In Detail: Materials for Interiors provides detailed and specific information on the use of appropriate materials in interior design. The book leads off with an overview of the range of available products for interior design, including large-format photographs of each material and interiors that use them. This is followed by detailed discussions of relevant aspects and production methods of the individual material groups, including selected examples. The processing of the materials is illustrated by production photographs from the construction site and numerous detail drawings. In the accompanying texts, expert planners who specialize in the various materials share their practical knowledge of how to use them. The technical articles and example projects focus on the surface of the material and how it is produced or comes to be and contain corresponding decision support for planners. Additional technical information on the materials used and a list of manufacturer and vendor addresses round out the volume. Werkstoffe und Oberflächen prägen die Architektur. Nicht selten entscheiden deren Optik und Haptik über Erfolg oder Misserfolg eines Projektes. Umso mehr stellt die richtige Auswahl und Verwendung von Materialien für den Planer eine besondere Herausforderung dar, der heutzutage – besonders im Innenausbau – einer nahezu unübersichtlichen Vielfalt an Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten und nahezu uneingeschränkten industriellen Fertigungstechniken gegenübersteht. „Im Detail: Material im Innenraum" liefert gezielte und detaillierte Informationen zum Einsatz geeigneter Materialien im Innenausbau. Den Auftakt des Buches bildet ein Überblick über die Produktpalette beim Innenausbau mit einem großformatigen Fotos des jeweiligen Materials und eines damit ausgestatteten Innenraums. Planungsrelevante Aspekte und Fertigungsmethoden der einzelnen Materialgruppen werden dann anhand ausgewählter Beispiele detailliert erläutert. Die Verarbeitung der Werkstoffe wird durch Fertigungsfotos von der Baustelle und mit zahlreichen Detailzeichnungen veranschaulicht. Die Begleittexte vermitteln das Praxiswissen von den jeweiligen Fachplanern zum Einsatz der Werkstoffe. Der Schwerpunkt der Fachartikel und der Projektbeispiele liegt dabei auf der Materialoberfläche, deren Entstehungs- bzw. Herstellungsprozess und birgt entsprechende Entscheidungshilfen für die Planung. Zusätzliche technische Infos zu den verwendeten Materialien sowie Hersteller/Bezugsadressen runden das Buch ab.

Professional interior design is about much more than aesthetics and decorating, and technical knowledge is critical. Before the space is planned, the designer must consider the mechanical and electrical equipment, structural system, and building components, and how they impact the space. This book shows you how to evaluate these complex factors, and how each affects your work throughout the building. Consider how site conditions and structural systems affect interior design Design functionally for human health and safety Factor water, electrical, and thermal systems into your design plans Examine the ways in which lighting and acoustics affect the space The comfort, safety, and ultimate success of a project depend upon your knowledge of building system and your coordination with architects and engineers. Building Systems for Interior Designers, Third Edition provides the comprehensive yet focused information you need to excel at what you do best.

AfterTaste: Expanded Practices in Interior Design is an edited volume comprising texts, interviews and portfolios that collectively document new theories and emerging critical practices in the field of interior design. The material is informed by, but not limited to, the annual AfterTaste symposia hosted by Parsons The New School of Design. The book's central argument is that the field of interior design is inadequately served by its historical reliance on taste-making and taste-makers, and, more recently from a set of theoretical concerns derived from architecture; the volume seeks to set an expanded frame by advancing new voices and perspectives in both the theory and practice of interior design, considered as an independent discipline. In 2007, the Department of Architecture, Interior Design and Lighting at Parsons The New School for Design inaugurated an annual international symposium series dedicated to the critical study of the interior. Titled AfterTaste, these yearly symposia offer expansive views of interior studies, highlight emerging areas of research, identify allied practices, make public its under-explored territory, and attract future designers and scholars to the field. Now in its fourth year, AfterTaste has proven to be one of the very few venues internationally for critically exploring interior design. The field of interior design is asymmetrically served by the current literature in the field. Too frequently, the current writing and making in interiors emphasize the ineffable, the biographical, and the social elite, and promote a curiously unsubstantiated notion of connoisseurship as the principal basis for design. Other attempts to construct an intellectual agenda for the study of the interior draw heavily from architectural theory, ignoring the discipline's own specific and autonomous history. AfterTaste, the book, is intended to adjust this imbalance by introducing interior design material that is theoretically and historically situated, technically grounded, demographically inclusive, and aesthetically adventurous.
