VAT rise and adjustments in the TouchShop | 4th January 2011

At midnight last night, VAT (ie sales tax) was increased in the UK from 17.5% to 20%.

In the TouchShop, from 4th January 2011, prices will be listed as including UK sales tax. VAT of 20% has to be added for all UK and EU sales [unless you have a valid EU VAT number].

If you live outside the EU, this tax does not apply and will not be added at the checkout.

There has been some pricing adjustment for certain items to incorporate this increase. In general, prices remain the same as before the rise...

Shaping Voices | A Shapeshifters Anthology

Hard back book featuring Jon Wozencroft's 'Heart and Soul'
148pp full colour

Shaping Voices is distributed by Oogachtend NV

Today, design exists in multiple contexts and encompasses a broad range of disciplines, practices, technologies and forms. Our information society is constantly pushing and redefi ning the visual landscape, opening the field for new developments and ideas. Throughout the book, the different authors present arguments and ideas to broaden the readers’ perspective, allowing them to go beyond the complexity of the current design debate. Shaping Voices aims to discuss the questions (and possible answers) concerning the development of new concepts for re-evaluating contemporary design practice and theory. The book contains the ideas and reflections of a variety of authors, ranging from a selection of designers and artists who have addressed this question within the framework of their work and design practice, to researchers and media art and design theorists who are facing these questions in their daily routine as lecturers and coaches of design students. The book is intended to be a means for the authors and contributors to communicate their shared passion regarding the rich potential of the design landscape for enlivening our environment.
