As mass-produced goods become ever more pervasive in our lives, so the role of design - and those who determine it - becomes increasingly important and subject to scrutiny. THE CONRAN DIRECTORY OF DESIGN provides the key to a better understanding of design today.It is the first comprehensive work of reference on this subject.Authoritative, yet spirited and opinionated, it is a guide to the history of well-designed consumer goods of the last hundred years (then 1985) - a lexicon of names, movements, innovative manufacturing companies, and materials and processes which opened up new possibilities for the designer.Arranged in alphabetical order, the entries combine the essential facts, an analysis of the significant features and an assessment of the subject's contribution to the development of design.While product design dominates, other aspects of design - such as graphics, architecture and fashion - are included where their influence on the styles of the century are inseparable from the industrial objects they affected. The 500 illustrations include not only major achievements in design history, but also contain many surprising and arresting items, and the captions explore the particular stylistic principles behind them. The incisive introductory chapters pinpoint key moments in the history of design, so that the entries and illustrations can be seen within a co-ordinated framework.The cross-referencing system, together with a detailed product index, enables you to trace the designer or manufacturer of any object described in the book. With an ever-growing public awareness of the subject, and new approaches in the ways it is taught, this book is an invaluable companion to design in the late 20thC.
