Skin: surface substance and design by Ellen Lupton. This was published alongside an exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design museum in New York in 2002. Ellen Lupton contributes to the following blogs, Design Your Life and D.I.Y. Kids
This book is mainly about surface in design but it draws on analogies of anatomy which I found inspiring. This is where I found the Marcel Wanders vase and there are a couple more pieces I would like to share with you. The cover of the book shows a design for fabric called Bumps, 2000 by Bullen, Pija Designs Ltd. The book is punctuated throughout with beautiful photographs by Elinor Carucci.
