The Design Bookis the greatest collection of inspirational product design in one affordable and collectable book. It showcases 500 of the most innovative, beautiful and influential products from the last five centuries that are still in production today. Each entry includes an image and a descriptive caption, providing accessible information about the product, designer, manufacturer and history. The book includes not only classic objects by Breuer, Le Corbusier, Eames, Castiglioni and more, but also anonymously designed pieces, such as the paper clip, the deck chair, and the corkscrew. It is an extraordinary journey through the objects that have shaped our society, from the first attempts to combine function and beauty in the 19 century, through the advent of plastic and other new materials of the 1950s and 60s, right up to the design classics of today.
