Why does Mark think steel is Indomitable?

 

As a part of an assignment, I critiqued Mark Miodownik’s Stuff Matter’s first chapter called ‘Indomitable’. I selected this book because I have a growing interest in product design and he has an interesting take on objects. Here’s why his book is so intriguing:

“This book is by no means an exhaustive survey of materials and
their relationship to human culture, but rather a snapshot of how
they affect our lives, and how even the most innocuous of activities
like drinking tea on a roof is founded on a deep material complexity.”
– Mark Miodownik
