"100: Design in 100 Objects" is a fascinating selection of images depicting objects that have played a major role in the evolution of international design. Thanks to 100 striking colour images, the reader will discover, page after page, everyday objects that are the result of a designer's inspiration. In many cases, we are completely unaware of the origin of the object. It is precisely due to the fact that design is very much part of our lives that this book is invaluable because it helps us to better understand the world we live in, where industrial design is now an essential feature.
