4.0 out of 5 stars Good one 5 Jan 2013
By Thoughts by CJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This International Design Yearbook is a good one. I rank Patricia Urquiola, Karim Rashid, and Tom Dixon's books higher, but that may be purely personal preference in content and organizational methodology. This one, however, is also quite good. These books are gems to scoop up, as they are now a relic of past ideas of what the future of design will bring. It is telling to see how well these ideas panned out, and to see where these early kernels have taken us today. Clearly, each of these should be studied in design school.

Great book... interesting design descriptions. Worthwhile addition to your collection. On a personal note... I own the chair that's pictured on the cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars I. D. Review 29 Mar 2000
By Tyler S. C. - Published on Amazon.com
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. There are commentaries on design at the introduction, which I found informative and interesting. Also, the quality of work that is displayed is absolutely amazing. There is verything from furniture to lighting, to the most innovative products of our time. The editors did a fantastic job on the page layout, truly a mastery of graphic design as well. Another great series of books along these lines is the Graphis yearbooks. I love the book, and I can't stop looking at it!
