Victor PapanekDesign pour un monde réel - Ecologie humaine et changement climatique


A critical re-edition in French of a work that is an absolute precursor and fundamental for the inclusion of social and environmental problems and issues of sustainability in the design process: the manifesto of a radical reconfiguration of the field of design, of its forms but above all of its mission.

Published in 1971 in more than twenty languages, Design for the Real World is much more than a classic in the history of design, it is the manifesto for all political and ecological design. It aims at social inclusion rather than monetary profit, fights against the subjugation of needs to the market, and advocates respect for the environment rather than the unlimited exploitation of nature and its resources. This critical reprint of the French translation, with essays by Alison J. Clarke and Emanuele Quinz, offers a glimpse of Victor Papanek’s programme: a revolutionary mission for design, which today more than ever reveals its astonishing relevance.
