Description

As we come to the end of this century and the beginning of the next, we can see clearly that the last 100 years have been marked by momentous changes in the field of design. Aesthetics has entered into everyday life, with often staggering results. Our homes and workplaces have been turned into veritable galleries of style and innovation.

This essential book is a comprehensive journey through the shapes and colours, forms and functions of design history in the 20th century. An A-Z of designers and design schools, which builds into a complete picture of contemporary living. Lavishly illustrated, this is design in the fullest sense.

From furniture to graphics, it's all here - the work of artists who have shaped and recreated the modern world with a dizzying variety of materials. From the organic to the geometric, from Art Deco, through to Pop and High-Tech, this book contains all the great names - Bernhard, Bertoia, De Stijl, Dieter Rams, Starck, Charles and Ray Eames, to name only a very few. The bible of breakthroughs and inspiration.
