This book offers a stunning visual history of 100 years of design.

Theyve shaped our modern age, whether its the chair were sitting in, the computer were reading on, or the house were living in. Design is everywhere, and this volume profiles 50 of the most influential figures of the past century. From the first bentwood chairs by Thonet to the holistically designed worlds of Bauhaus and Le Corbusier, and from the signature styles of designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Eileen Gray, and Philippe Starck to internationally known brands like Swatch, Muji, and Apple, the designers here are profiled in double- page spreads packed with fascinating background information, photographs, and illustrations. As inspiring as it is informative, this far-reaching book celebrates the impact that design has on our daily lives.
