    The first book on one of the leading collections of modern industrial design. A must-have for lovers of modernism, this is an accessible but authoritative introduction to the field.From the second industrial revolution to the start of the digital revolution, industrial design has played a major role in shaping society and the everyday objects used for living, working, and traveling. As factories transitioned from manufacturing machines for war to mass-produced goods, industrial design evolved to meet the needs of a quickly growing consumer economy. 100 Designs for a Modern World is a curated overview of the most influential pieces of modern industrial design from 1900 to the present day. George R. Kravis II has collected some of the most innovative and memorable products—including, for example, the Silver Streak glass iron—that contributed to this radical transformation of global culture.This book presents one hundred exceptionally designed objects: chairs, radios, irons, electric clocks, ceramic tableware, textiles, posters, and other graphic designs. The chronological organization generates a history of industrial design since the turn of the twentieth century. With an introduction by design historian Penny Sparke, this book is an authoritative reference on industrial design in the twentieth and early-twentyfirst centuries. Meticulously selected and beautifully photographed, this elegant book is both an informative guide and a source of inspiration for collectors and enthusiasts of modern industrial design.

    "The dawn of the twenty-first century has witnessed an explosion of creativity in just about every field of design. There is a new spirit in the air and in just a few years, the assumptions of the last century about how things should look and function have been overturned by a new wave of designers employing an astonishing variety of styles and approaches. The areas of architecture, furniture and product design in particular are in the throes of a revolution. Meanwhile, the public's appetite for design is higher than ever before: there has never been as much interest in the subject as there is today. Right now, design is arguably the most exciting of all the creative disciplines and this book will be the essential guide to every aspect of international design in the start of the twenty-firstt century.This book is the first comprehensive survey of the contemporary design landscape, guiding the reader through the often bewildering array of contemporary movements, styles and trends and identifying the most important designers working in the world today as well as the designs that will become the classics of the future. Intelligently and provocatively written, it places the contemporary scene in a historic framework and explores the cultural and economic forces shaping design now and in the future. It explains the vigorous debates under way in - and between - areas including architecture, fashion, interiors and product design in a way that is accessible and engaging. It will look at both the avant-garde and mass-market ends of the design spectrum. "
