Hybrid is a visually compelling, intelligently written compendium investigating hybridity in contemporary design.

The publication showcases nine Hybrid projects, commissioned by the Powerhouse Museum, in which design studios were asked to team up with creatives from disciplines outside their own to devise ‘furniture and objects for future homes’. The selected designers have created objects exploring the rapidly changing global landscape and the pressing issues of our time.

Around this core, essays, interviews, reportage imagery and other documents flesh out the theme of ‘Hybrid’. These include an overview by Powerhouse curator Keinton Butler; essays by Caroline Roux on organic architecture and Dan Thawley on urban farming; and interviews with designers by Guy Keulemans on new materials and Felix Burrichter on hybridity in craft and design.

The Hybrid publication is edited by design writer and editor Stephen Todd, art directed by m/m (paris) using a custom typeface and iconographic family. Striking photographs of the commissions by Zan Wimberley are featured alongside images of the process and drawings of the works.

Hand numbered edition of 500.
