Product Description

Modern design landmarks 360 of them in a swanky, small package.

Twentieth Century Design is an irresistably compact handbook of the most influential pieces of design produced in the modern age. Featuring photographs and descriptions of the century-defining work of such pioneers as Frank Lloyd Wright, Rem Koolhaas, Gio Ponti, Eileen Gray, Charles and Ray Eames, Helmut Newton, Vivienne Westwood, Saul Bass, Phillippe Starck, Neville Brody, and many others, the result is a celebration of design in the twentieth century, in its many guises in advertising, furniture, graphics, architecture, fashion, interiors, and more.

Twentieth Century Design is a comprehensive and colorful survey of the classics of contemporary design, up to the minute, it includes such recent innovations as the Apple iMac and the new Beetle. With a stylish small-scale format that is itself an example of excellent design, this is the biggest small book yet on twentieth century design.
