Rethinking Design and Interiors

Rethinking Design and Interiors

Laurence King Publishers

by Shashi Caan

August 2011

Formerly chair of interior design at Parsons in New York, Caan sets out to change and clarify the perceptions and misconceptions about contemporary interior design by examining some of the key issues that define what it is, how it is different from architecture, what specific skills it requires and what design problems it solves. The book also aspires to provide new creative possibilities which can help not only to expand and distinguish the discipline but also elevate its stature and esteem.
