This comprehensive guide embraces all modern design's numerous manifestations: graphics, products, interiors, furniture, industrial and architectural design. In over 500 entries, this book examines not only the work of important designers worldwide, but also the many dramatic changes that have influenced design and its uses in the 20th-century. Thus political and ideological concepts, such as feminism and green design, are defined and explained as are new technological advances, new materials and techniques and influential movements in modern culture. The text incorporates extensive cross-referencing and full bibliographic notes, along with a chronological chart of design highlights since 1900. This encyclopaedia provides a companion for students and everyone with an interest in design.
