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.
