A product can be manufactured in many ways, but most designers know a handful of techniques only. With specially commissioned diagrams, case studies, and photographs of the manufacturing process, Making It uses contemporary design as a vehicle to describe over 120 production processes. Each process is also evaluated in terms of sustainability and its effects on the environment.
Making It appeals to product, interior, furniture, and graphic designers who need access to a range of production methods, as well as to all students of design. The expanded edition includes six new processes and a new section on joining.
