Design for Human Scale (1983)[1] by Victor PapanekW is a book about design with a focus on what is appropriate and needed by humans.

Papanek examines the need for design to satisfy real human needs rather than superficial. Papanek writes: "Much recent design has satisfied only evanescent wants and desires, while the genuine needs of man have often been neglected by the designer."
