Norm = Form: On Standardization and Design.
De Rijk, Timo.
Norm = Form: On Standardization and Design.
The 2010 exhibition Norm=Form demonstrated that our possessions have never been as uniform as they are today. From shoes to kitchens, coffee cups to computer programs, almost everything we buy and use is standardised. This highly illustrated exhibition book features historic and futuristic examples of design standardisation, while its texts examine different aspects of the phenomenon. Affordability and accessibility bring benefits, but the imposition of social and cultural norms can bring challenges. And standardised industrial design is a fast-moving concept: Norm=Form reveals the paradox of how standardisation changes quickly over time.
