Abstract:

From Jacobsen to Tupperware, this dictionary of Modern Design covers the period from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth. Over 2,000 entries on names and movements from the past 150 years of design include ceramics, furniture, graphics, industrial design, interiors, and fashion, as well as biographical entries on designers, manufacturers, major museums and heritage sites. The dictionary, international in focus, also covers major movements, key concepts, design terminology, and important design institutions. The dictionary also features funky illustrations at every letter's opening page, with zeitgeist design concepts from Action Man and Barbie to Ferrari and Electrolux, which bring the designs to life.
