Kurzbeschreibung

7. November 2013
Design is a multi-disciplined approach to problem-solving that has always uniquely reflected humankind's aspirations, needs and desires. It has both shaped and mirrored the spirit of our times. The Story of Design is a fascinating multi-stranded account that is truly comprehensive in its scope, introducing the styles, movements, theories, materials, processes, technologies, leading practitioners and companies that have shaped modern design into what it is today. Contextualizing developments in design with regard to wider social, cultural and political matters, this is an indispensable overview of creative endeavour in the pursuit of the better-designed product. Through exquisite illustrations and authoritative text, this definitive account studies the foundations of design practice from its earliest inception and defines the major themes that have guided this discipline from the from the prehistoric era to the Ancient world, from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution and Modern Movement to our own Digital Age. Leading design historians Charlotte and Peter Fiell, through careful analysis of the evolution of modern design, uncover the real importance of this unique yet all-encompassing creative activity and assess its crucial future role in society.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
An impressive and thoughtful history of design that covers it all in five hundred pages. Design historians Charlotte and Peter Fiell pull together the various creative strands stretching back over the centuries. Though they start with simple tools created by earliest man I think the story really begins with Middle Age craftsman and then takes off with the development of mass production, in the eighteenth century, allowing the same item to be made thousands of times. A good example of this is the simple but elegant model fourteen cafe chair designed by Michael Thonet in 1859. It cost less than a bottle of wine and by 1891 had sold 7.3 million units.

Thonet's mass produced simple chair was made a little later than the 1850 Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace, housed in a huge glass pavilion. The chapter called ' High Victorian style and dishonest design' reveals that many of the exhibits were of questionable design and manufacture. They had been chosen to represent the best of contemporary art and production but the consumer items were covered with ornament and heavy patterns, the more excessive the better, the complete opposite of Thonet's chair.

The book reveals plenty of examples of good design versus commercial mass-market products and the reasons for the existence of both. I thought the coverage impressively broad with a chapters on, for example, Springfield Armory and the American Civil War, Vienna Secessionists, WW2 military design, Memphis and the last chapter on 3D printing. One of the strengths of the book is the way the editorial is divided into sections. The twenty chapters are each split into three, four or five additional clearly defined sections revealing the various design themes and styles which makes them very accessible to the reader.

The twenty chapters are each split into three, four or five additional clearly defined sections revealing the various design themes and styles which makes them very accessible to the reader. There are also several hundred photos and graphics (all beautifully printed on a matt art paper) to illustrate the text.

I thought the book was a fascinating and revealing explanation of why things look like they do and how they got that way. Nicely the writing is jargon free so that the pages can be enjoyed by the general reader or design professionals.
