Discover over 500 of the most innovative, influential, and enduring products of the past five centuries in this fully revised and expanded edition of Phaidon's much-loved companion to the best of design.

Embark on an extraordinary journey through objects from the last 500 years that have improved our environments and functionality, and shaped society and culture. With an image for each object featured and descriptive text that includes information about the product itself, its designer, manufacturer and history, The Book of Design includes iconic works by masters such as Le Corbusier, Philippe Starck and the Eameses, alongside classic objects such as the paperclip, the hurricane lantern and the martini glass. This new edition also features 30 new products from the past 15 years, carefully selected and curated to reflect innovations in modern design.

Praise for the original edition:

“Phaidon seems to have pulled off the rare trick of creating something accessible and broad, yet truly interesting and informative at the same time.” – Design Week
