Synesthetic Design - Handbook for a Multi-Sensory Approach by Michael Haverkamp / ISBN 9783034607155 / 448-page hardback, 7.2 x 9.7 inches, published by Birkhäuser [new copy, discounted because of dent to back board and top of pages]
Synesthetic design strives to develop products that systematically incorporate all five senses. In future, the current wealth of medical technical insights in psychology, physiology, motor functions, and neurology and the development of innovative materials with astonishing new properties will open up almost unlimited opportunities for the designer’s creativity. Haverkamp brings together for the first time precisely those aspects of this fundamental knowledge that are specifically relevant for designers. The result is a book that offers designers of all schools a clear and well-organized practical handbook and a solid foundation for their own designs.
Michael Haverkamp is an internationally recognized expert on sound design and synesthesia research in general.
