Now available in a new edition, this book offers a stunning visual history of 100 years of design. Designers have shaped our modern age, whether it’s the chair we’re sitting in, the computer we’re reading on, or the house we’re living in. Design is everywhere, and this volume profiles fifty of the most influential figures over the past one hundred years. From the first bentwood chairs by Thonet to the holistically designed worlds of Bauhaus and Le Corbusier, and from the signature styles of designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Eileen Gray, and Philippe Starck to internationally known brands like Swatch, Muji, and Apple, the designers presented here are profiled in double-page spreads packed with fascinating background information, photographs, and illustrations. As inspiring as it is informative, this far-reaching book celebrates the impact that design has on our daily life.
“This highly recommended book… will encourage students to consider the importance of effective design in their day-to-day lives.” —School Arts Magazine
