Bilak, Peter ed. Works That Work #2

Pap. Typotheque. 2013

Book ID: 95498

A self-described accumulation of design-related stories that would make good dinner discussions with friends, this second instalment of Works That Work follows a thread of interest that begins with Kester Freriks focus on the noise-reducing landscape surrounding Amsterdams Schiphol airport, then sees Ed van Hinte recounting the remarkable story of the Boeing 747, which was designed around the specifications of the intermodal container, the complex global impact of which is described by Marc Levinson. Globalisation is further investigated by Suzanne Wales and Peter Bilak, through smuggling, trade and the portable lamp, and Hans Wilschut finds fake trees in Johannesburg.
