Product description

Review

Women Design assumes the Herculean task of highlighting women’s contributions to design–including architecture, industrial design, digital design, and graphics–from the 20th century to the present day. It has no business being just 176 pages, but author Libby Sellers, a prominent British gallerist and curator, manages to pack a wealth of information in profiles of 21 women designers. Historic pioneers such as Denise Scott Brown, Ray Eames, and Lella Vignelli get their due, as well as contemporary stars like Neri Oxman, Patricia Urquiola, and Kazuyo Sejima. ... This book attempts to correct the narrative, and it tells some rollicking stories along the way.

"a fascinating insight into the women who have shaped the way we live"

About the Author

Libby Sellers is a design historian, consultant and former senior curator of the Design Museum, London.

Her seven years at the Design Museum produced a wealth of exhibitions, including the first UK retrospectives of Marc Newson and Peter Saville, a celebration of the life and work of Eileen Gray, the annual Designer of Year awards and the Thomas Heatherwick Conran Foundation Collection exhibition.

Through her eponymous London-based gallery, Libby worked with some the industry’s most critical and progressive designers, commissioning works from them to sell through curated exhibitions. Her close working relationship with these designers led to the launching of many new careers and developed a broader understanding of the narrative power of critical and conceptual design. These works have been purchased by international clients, collectors and museums – including MoMA New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Victoria & Albert Museum, London and CNAP, France.

In 2015, Libby closed the gallery space to focus on writing, direct client commissions, small patrons’ circles editions and freelance curation – the first of which was an exhibition on behalf of the Serpentine Galleries during Milan’s annual Furniture Fair. She is a juror on numerous design awards, is on the vetting committees of international fairs, and has authored two publications: one on the cultures of collecting design, which was launched during Design Miami/Basel 2010 for HSBC Private Bank. Libby was nominated for the 2008 Paul Hamlyn Breakthrough Fund for cultural entrepreneurs, the Wallpaper* Courvoisier Design Awards in 2009. In 2014 she was honoured by the Women of the Year awards as a Woman of Achievement in the Arts.
