Description

'Sixties Design' provides a richly illustrated survey of a remarkable decade. The text reviews the period through certain all-important themes - the Modernist continuum, Pop culture, Space-Age styles, Utopian ambitions and Anti-Design, identifying the impact of new thinking on every area of design. The illustrations follow the ideas presented in the text and embrace a wide variety of media, making connections between domestic and industrial design, graphics, film, fashion, architecture and city planning.

This is the first book to analyse the international design trends of a decade increasingly recognised as one of the most visually exciting of the 20th century, a decade remembered with affection by those who experienced it and viewed with fascination by the younger generation.
