When Pakhalé talks about ‘sensorial design,’ he is not attaching any label to the act of making, but bringing our attention back to experience as the core of art.”– Dr. Tiziana Proietti
The monograph “aims to initiate a new debate about design and its plurality and diversity in the contemporary cultural context,” according to the press release. It brings new facts and facets of design history to attention for the first time challenging preconceived notions such as the legendary Ulm Model, the Aristotelian five senses and the common understanding of traditions and cultural background from India.”
The book covers a wide range of topics, such as the culture of making, social modernity, poetic analogy, sensorial design, plurality of expression in design, secular humanism, and much more.
