Business cards are a statement of identity. Capable of conveying much more than contact information, they represent the creativity or style of a company in a portable format. As a historical artifact in the digital age, they are constantly in danger of obsolescence and only those that truly stand out are memorable. Incorporating an interactive component is one way to make a card noteworthy. This collection features a musical comb that plays a tune when strummed and an envelope business card that contains a customizable mini-portfolio. Other designs include inventive uses of color, unusual shapes, or innovative materials such as wood, stainless steel, cotton, rubber and even temperature sensitive paper. Judging by the brilliant designs contained in this collection, the business card is here to stay!

The Andrew Martin brand no longer just stands for a sumptuous selection of decorative fabrics, wall cov-erings, designer furniture, and home accessories, but also for the “Andrew Martin Interior Designer of the Year Award.” Volume 18 of the Interior Design Review once again features the designers who have won over the renowned jury with their work. Richly illustrated with over 1000 color photographs, this retrospective of the publication—now in its 18th year—has been dubbed “the bible of interior design.” A compendium of contemporary interior design styles, it’s essential for any professional interior decorator or design lover. The artists are individually presented, followed by contact details in an appendix. The broad sweep of exemplary interiors represents an extraordinary variety of international design—brought to life with lush, glossy photos. With a mix of different cultures, the interiors assembled here nostalgically allude to a wide range of styles, while also embodying Andrew Martin’s dazzling world of interior design. © Andrew Martin Interior Design Review Volume 18, published by teNeues, www.teneues.com.

Whether trophy or status symbol, comfort or escape, books can have profound meaning in our lives. As a result, how we store them can take on importance. Bookshelf Design examines the most creative storage solutions of recent years by an international cast of industrial and furniture designers. In some, the books are hidden or not immediately recognizable, in others they take center stage and even interact with the design to create the finished composition. The definition of “bookshelf” is expanded to include, chairs, tables and even lamps that function as storage. There are a myriad of ways to shelve a book, but chances are, youve never thought of these.

Landscape Design examines innovations and inventiveness in current landscape architecture. The book features a variety of projects from around the world, including commercial properties, private residences, and government and public buildings. Local environments have been highly considered by the designers, and have thus played a large role in the plant life, building materials, use of space, and topographical elements. Many of the landscape projects use sculpture, water features and unique materials to blur the lines between landscape architecture and installation art. As a compilation of some of the worlds best landscape designers, Landscape Design will provide any student, firm or individual working in the field with insight and inspiration into current practices and constructions of outdoor spaces. The projects featured will make you reconsider your idea of what is possible in the field.

Toys and sweets are just not enough for our children today. With an insatiable appetite for new things, children are eager to explore and learn. They are the most open-minded and spontaneous audience, who are at all times building and living in a world of their own imagination.
These young customers rely on their instincts, not patience, to judge and pick what they love and hate. Victionary’s new title Just Kidding studies how contemporary product, environmental, and graphic designs for children draw on bold characters and decisions to inspire and appeal.
Just Kidding presents today's most serious designs that not only look endearing, but are also creative, instructional, useful, and safe for children to play and interact with.

In a prison, igloo, or treehouse, on top of a mountain, or under the stars what's the next stop? Architecture and leisure meet in this glimpse into the craziest places to stay while on the road. The new ideas, transformed spaces, and new interpretations of lodging in Extreme Hotels all prioritize fun. Compiled within are 40 of the most exciting and unusual "overnights" in Europe, from converted lodges, art gallery hotels, geodesic domes, eco pods, and a bustling lounge hostel on a converted houseboat to a one room lodging extended in mid-air within the shell of a functioning wharf crane. Each hotel is described in terms of its architectural and design ingenuity, placed in context on a map of Europe, and introduced with key details including address, phone and fax numbers, date of establishment, and number of rooms and suites. Illustrated beautifully, the volume appeals to both the adventurous tourist and the armchair traveler.
