By Hugh Aldersey-Williams. With a contribution by Paola Antonelli
As the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, Great Britain was the epicenter of the development of modern industrial design. This book—the fourth volume in the MoMA Design Series, featuring works in the Museum's extraordinary collection—explores this legacy, tracing the growth of British design from the eighteenth century to the Millennium Dome and beyond. In its more than two hundred-year scope, British Design explores Wedgwood pottery, the Arts and Crafts Movement, the Mini car and Dyson vacuum cleaner, the "Cool Britannia" cultural explosion in the late 1990s, and British designers' take on the digital devices that define entertainment and communication in the early twenty-first century.
An introduction by Paola Antonelli, curator of architecture and design at The Museum of Modern Art, provides an overview of design culture in Great Britain; an essay and timeline by Hugh Aldersey-Williams, author of The Most Beautiful Molecule and New American, illuminate the masterpieces of modern British design superbly reproduced in the volume's plate section. 144 pp.; 105 illus.
