A century of colour in design: 250 innovative objects | Author: David Harrison
Discover the dazzling history of colour in design, from Bauhaus to Memphis and beyond. This curated anthology of furniture, fabric, lights and decorative objects shows how colour has defined key designs over the last century. Broad in its scope, A Century of Colour in Design delivers a snapshot of 20th-century history through the lens of design, exploring the origins and rationale behind the design and colouration of some of the century’s most iconic furniture and objects.
The allure of colour is undeniable, but its wholesale use in product design is a relatively recent development. From the pale blue Anglepoise lamp to Marimekko’s hot-red poppy print and the wine-red Bookworm Bookshelf, this book includes classics, future classics and equally exciting new pieces that will be a discovery for readers.
