The Language of Things
on 5 November 2011
After attending a lecture by Deyan Sudjic, I was interested in reading his book - The Language of Things.
Although Design is becoming an increasingly complex discipline to define, Deyan Sudjic not only introduces it in the context of the modern world and how it has evolved, but also discusses the emotive and practical overlap between design and its reluctant neighbours, fashion, art and luxury culture.
This book provides a broad contextual and historical overview with text peppered with fascinating and well observed specific examples.
This is an enjoyable, informative and thought provoking read - a must for anyone with an interest in Design and how it relates to Culture.
