Why We Love This

A design classic is an industrially manufactured object with timeless aesthetic value. It serves as a standard of its kind and, regardless of the year in which it was designed, is still up to date. The objects in this book--all of which are still in production today--are presented chronologically, each on a single page with a large image and a concise caption, written by one of more than 50 design experts. These texts provide a historical context, with key information about the development of the design and an explanation as to why that particular design is important and groundbreaking.
