Published in 1976, Design Matters sets out Bernat Klein’s views on design as a working designer in Britain at that time. Throughout his life Klein was a protagonist for ‘good design’ as he believed that it had the potential to change people’s lives for the better.
As an illustrated text book Design Matters, provides a reference to Klein’s examples of domestic and industrial design, which were selected to emphasise the role and importance of design. As he described, ’Design means to enjoy the exploration of new possibilities. It means to take pleasure in finding new solutions to old problems; or to have fun juggling with a number of old solutions until they suddenly click and coalesce into one, beautiful, new solution.’
