Published by Phaidon, The Design Book brings together a selection of the most significant design classics of all time from around the world. Each object is presented with an elegant photo and informative text, and the updated version of the book features over 30 new products. The book has been composed by Phaidon’s own editorial team.
From the paper clip to the Eames Lounge Chair, the hundreds of everyday objects included in The Design Book span the last five centuries and shape our society in indelible ways. This extraordinary collection includes classic pieces by Breuer, Le Corbusier, and Castiglioni as well as anonymously designed objects like the deck chair and the whisk. Each entry has been carefully reviewed to bring every detail fully up to date and, with the addition of 30 products designed within the last 15 years, this new edition is more comprehensive — and relevant — than ever.
