A critical overview of contemporary design and its place within the broader context of art history

A Companion to Contemporary Design since 1945 introduces readers to a collection of specially commissioned essays exploring the complex areas of design that emerged through the latter half of the twentieth century, design history, design methods, design studies and more recently, design thinking.

The book delivers a thoughtful overview of all design disciplines and also strives to stimulate inter-disciplinary debate and examine unconsidered convergences among design applications in different fields. By offering a new perspective on design, the articles assembled here present a challenging account of the boundaries between design history and its cognate disciplines, especially art history.

The volume comprises five sections--Time, Place, Space, Objects and Audiences--that discuss environments for design and how we interact with designed objects and spaces. Notable features include:

24 new essays reflecting the current state of design history and theory, and examining developments on a global basisContributions by eminent scholars and practitioners from around the globeEnriched throughout with illustrations

A Companion to Contemporary Design since 1945 provides a new and thought-provoking revision of our conception and understanding of contemporary design that will be essential reading for students at both undergraduate and graduate levels as well as researchers and teachers working in design history, theory and practice, and in related fields.
