Tibetan Spinning Craft and Social Design

藏族纺织与社会设计

Through the case of Norlha’s ten-year practice and exploration in the Tibetan region and the workshop’s yak wool products, this book not only presents an epitome of the development of product design and social design in the Tibetan region, but analyzes the combination of modern design thinking with traditional Tibetan anticraft and culture and the way of employing the ideas of social design and sustainable design to improve the Tibetans’ living conditions and mode of production. 
The book is designed spine-free, leaving the sewing-thread structure bare. The front-cover applies snow-white, while the back-cover sky blue, capturing the pure scenery of the Tibetan Plateau. The key element of yak wool in this book is also subtly embedded into the book cover, bringing the feel of this unique Tibetan material to the reader physically.

本书是以诺乐所制作的牦牛绒产品和在藏区多年的实践与探索为案例,借此展现产品设计与社会设计在中国藏区发展的缩影,并分析如何将现代的设计思维与西藏传统手工艺和文化相结合,以及如何用社会设计和可持续性设计的理念与藏民们共同去改善他们的生活条件与生产方式。
书籍设计选用无书脊的装帧方式,将线装书的结构完整地展现出来。封面与封底分别选择雪山的白色与天空的蓝色为底色,象征着青藏高原纯净的景象。同时,本书出现的核心元素牦牛绒被巧妙地嵌入到封面中,读者可以触摸并感受到这一独特的材料。
