Spanning five millennia of artefacts, from chopsticks (c.3000 BCE) to Facebook, Grace Lees-Maffei presents 50 stories in five sections, each one arranged chronologically and including a great diversity of design. The first section covers objects in urban space ranging from the Eiffel Tower to Dubai's Palm Islands, but also includes mobility scooters and Concorde. The other themes are ideas and imagination on page and screen; objects in the workplace; domestic designs; and things we wear or carry with us.
