Description

Poised at the start of the 21st century, we can see clearly that the previous century was marked by momentous changes in the field of design. Aesthetics entered into everyday life with often staggering results. Our homes and workplaces turned into veritable galleries of style and innovation. From furniture to graphics, the work of artists who have shaped and recreated the modern world with a dizzying variety of materials bare all included in this book. From the organic to the geometric, from Art Deco through to Pop and High-Tech, this book contains all the great names including Bernhard, Bertoia, De Stijl, Dieter Rams, Starck and Charles and Ray Eames, to namea few. This essential source book is a comprehensive journey through the shapes and colours, forms and functions of design history in the 20th century.
