Kenneth Grange: Designing the Modern World | Author: Lucy Johnston

The work of renowned design pioneer Sir Kenneth Grange has touched the lives of almost every consumer worldwide and has had a lasting influence on today?s younger designers, from Sir Jonathan Ive, Jasper Morrison and Marc Newson to Thomas Heatherwick and the founding brothers of Joseph Joseph.

This fascinating story of a life in design is set against the background of Britain?s remarkable transition from post-war exhaustion and a battered industrial landscape to the vibrant powerhouse of creativity and innovation that it has become today. Through a combination of hard work, natural talent and a ?can-do? attitude, Grange found himself swept up in that early ?industry of change and taste-making?, and he has remained at the centre of it for seven decades.
