About the Author

Bradley Quinn is a London-based writer and journalist who regularly contributes to such magazines and newspapers as Wallpaper*, Elle Decoration, Blueprint and the Evening Standard, as well as to trend-forecasting guides. His books include Ultra Materials: How Materials Innovation is Changing the World (2007) and Textile Designers at the Cutting Edge (2009).


"Design Futures" (Merrell), by Bradley Quinn, surveys the high-tech avant-garde in design and architecture. Trends include buildings that rotate and revolve to give residents varied views or the best light; robots that help with housework; clothing made of "smart" material that reacts to movement and the environment; and furniture made from thin, ultra-strong fibers. - WALL STREET JOURNAL Textile and design expert Bradley Quinn secures his place among authors on the pulse of technology and design... Treading the boundary between academic and journalist, the author's relaxed approach belies his curiosity. Balanced with his opinion of the trends he's observed and thoughtful conjecture, Quinn often leaves the reader with a gaping jaw. - COOL HUNTING - a great source for new radical steps and directions that designers and the creative industries are taking in product and environment design - STYLUS MAGAZINE Design Futures is an exhilarating ride into the future and beyond... - EMBODY 3D
