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.
