Design Incubator: A Prototype for New Design by Patrick Chia
This book selects and curates exclusive content from DIC's extensively documented seven-year archive and is presented here as a single body of work. Interspersed with insights and reflections from team members past-and-present, it is a handbook for designers that seek to incorporate unique, progressive methods and approaches into their personal or professional practices as well as a retrospective monograph on the Design Incubation Centre. Projects within the book are arranged and organised in a thematic manner and contain over 400 colour photographs, charts, notes and sketches that illustrate with acuity how ideas and research are distilled and translated into polished prototypes and outcomes. Over the years, the Centre had its work featured and exhibited at The MoMA, New York, Maison et Objet, Paris, Salone Satellite, Milan and Ricordi & Sfera, Tokyo.
