Open Design Now looks at design in the new networked world. Design is becoming an open discipline, in which ideas are shared and products are being renewed in a worldwide collaborative process. Open Design empowers everybody to devise and distribute their own products.
This book presents essays, case studies, a lexicon of images related to the main topics and practical guidelines for designers, design educators and policy makers to get started with Open Design.

Overview of Open Design:
practices, tools, licensing systems. As Open Design is a way of designing everyone can participate in, what are emerging practices that facilitate it? what are the tools, existing and needed, to make it happen (physical tools, digital tools, legal tools)?

Underlying principles of Open Design:
Networked tools for distributed physical production, the understanding of the commons as an elementary resource for cultural production, etc.

Implications of Open Design
:
What effect does Open Design have on designing, artistic expression and creative processes? on the relationship of producer and consumer? on design business? on society at large?
