In Fantastic Plastic: Product Design & Consumer Culture, esteemed contemporary designers, artists and scientists explore the evolution of this ubiquitous and endlessly malleable material, through its trademarked names - Spandex, Teflon, Nylon, Rayon, Formica, Tupperware - through to looking at how its function and reputation have changed over its lifetime. Plastics have been used in the manufacture of everything from children's toys, to furniture, to clothes and has played its part in the creation of contemporary design icons from the ipod to the Tom Vac Chair.
