Description

21st Century Design is a fascinating survey of the contemporary design landscape, guiding the reader through the intoxicating array of contemporary movements, styles and trends, and identifying today's leading designers, as well as future design classics. This pioneering publication places the contemporary scene in a historic framework and explores cultural and economic forces shaping design now and in the years to come. Accessible and engaging, it charts the incredible explosion of design worldwide and discusses cross-fertilisation between design movements in what is rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting industries in the world.
