"Design Anthropology" brings together a unique range of cutting-edge design theorists and social scientists to explore the changing object culture of the 21st century.

From design ethnography to cultural probing, innovative designers in the 21st century are relying on anthropological methods to illicit the meaning, rather than the mere form and function of 'stuff.'
