Jonsara Ruth, Associate Professor of Interior Design at Parsons, The New School, New York and Design Director at the Healthy Materials Lab
A series of short, thought-provoking texts which identifies key topics and trends in the field of design and debates their impact both on the design profession and the wider world. It addresses how designers are attempting to face many of the challenges currently facing society. While a designer’s direct impact on society may vary in scale, nothing reveals how society is changing as clearly as design. The series will be accessible, stimulating, sometimes controversial.
