Beschreibung des Verlags
With the new edition of this publication, we would like to respond to questions about ecological product design and life cycle thinking. It is directed towards everyone interested in contemporary design that has an eye on both design and environmental protection. This book fits well in our efforts to develop supportive and competence-building practical information that can serve as a guide and offer help to designers and other practitioners of environment-friendly product design.
