This is followed by a discussion of the relationship of taste to 'design for sustainability'. Drawing on the work of authors such as Thackara and Chapman, it is demonstrated that diversity in taste can be accommodated and welcomed within this relatively new and developing area of design. A series of original, exploratory artefacts illustrate how these new directions can be manifested within a broader understanding of product design.
