A reference book for students, a source book for professional designers and a revelation for the public. The first book to look at British design as a distinct genre in a global context.

(TCM, Nielsen Bookscan)

About the Author

The Design Museum's mission is to celebrate, entertain, and inform. It is the world's leading museum devoted to contemporary design in every form from furniture to graphics, and architecture to industrial design. Working to place design at the centre of contemporary culture, it demonstrates both the richness of the creativity to be found in all forms of design, and its importance. Design is a hugely fertile field of inventive new work, as well as a key component underpinning the modern economy. It provides a means for understanding the contemporary world, and, potentially, for making it a better place.

Format: Hardcover
This book was a purchase for a friend who runs his own design company. He was delighted with the book and still has it out on show in his livingroom! Beautiful book and something a little different.
