This inspiring book chronicles the most influential ideas that have shaped industrial and product design. Written by two experts on modern design, it provides both a concise history of the subject, and offers a fascinating resource to dip into for the general reader.
From the origins or modern design in the craft movements of the 19th and early 20th century and the changes brought about by mass production, the book traces the most important ideas in design through the modern movement and post-war consumer society to more recent ideas such as Open-Source Design and Biomimicry.
Arranged in a broadly chronological order, the ideas are presented through fascinating text and arresting visuals, 100 Ideas that Changed Design explores when each idea first evolved and the subsequent impact it has had up to the present day.
"Offering a concise history of design, this book pulls together innovative and influential ideas that underpin its evolution. From key 19th and 20th century movements to the impact of digitalisation, this compendium explores the past, present and future of material culture." -- Aesthetica.com
