Design is everywhere, from the chairs on which we sit to the clothes we wear. This stylish book charts the great ideas and turning points in the history of design. More than 150 illustrations show key objects – buildings, furniture and household appliances – that have shaped the way we live. The 20 chapters explain new materials and production techniques, influential movements such as Arts and Crafts and the Bauhaus, and recent developments such as postmodernism, minimalism and ecological design.
