The industrial Design that shape our Lives

If you have even a modicum of curiosity about the design of your toothbrush, the origin story of your washing machine, or the evolution of the telephone, this completely updated edition of Design A to Z will further pique your interest.

Tracing the evolution of design from the Industrial Revolution to the present day, the volume offers numerous examples of synergies between form and function that radically change our daily experience. From cameras to kitchen utensils, from Lego to Lamborghini, this volume introduces us to individual designers, global companies and above all the intellectual products that have integrated themselves into the smallest details of our lives.

In addition to established designers such as Marc Newson and Philippe Starck and major global brands such as Braun and Apple, lesser-known and more recent entries such as Brompton Bicycles or Enercon wind turbines testify not only to the incessant pace of industrial product design, but also to the priorities and the most urgent current challenges to which it must direct its inventiveness and creativity.

Charlotte and Peter Fiell are well-known design authors having written over sixty books on the subject. Among their various areas of specialization is the realm of transportation design in all its diverse forms. The Fiells have lectured widely, guest taught courses, curated exhibitions, and consulted manufacturing companies, museums, salerooms, and major private collectors around the world. Together, they have written numerous TASCHEN books.
