This book features 333 design classics from the mid 1960s up to the present day that show the impact of new technology on product design.
With the world at our fingertips, thanks to commercial air travel, the colour television and the computer, global access and communication play an increasingly important role in design. From the first compact disc to the laptop computer, digital design opens up a conscious investigation of even newer and more unusual materials, technologies and inspirations. These design products have changed the way we communicate, the way we travel and the way we make ourselves at home in the 21st century.
Includes all the key designs by the people who re-invented established products and set new standards in style and quality, including Philippe Starck, Ron Arad, Konstantin Grcic, Marc Newson and Jonathan Ive. Full information is supplied on each of the products, the design process and their manufacturers. Illustrated with photographs of both the finished product as well as the groundbreaking technology that created them.
