Now in its seventeenth year, this unique showcase remains the most authoritative guide to contemporary domestic design.
Covering the best and most innovative furniture, lighting, tableware, textiles, and products created over the past 18 months by both well-known designers and new names from around the world, this year's striking selections has been made by internationally acclaimed designer Ross Lovegrove.
Because the unique qualities of certain materials greatly impact the conception and design of any object, International Design Yearbook 17 has taken a fresh approach and organized items by the material used: metals, glass, textiles, plastics, and paper/wood/ceramics. The objects are lavishly illustrated, and full technical data is given for each. This who's who of domestic design features the vibrant new talent of Anna Pamintuan and Paolo Ulian, as well as remarkable work by Campana Brothers, Hishinuma, and Karim Rashid. A comprehensive reference section provides biographies of all included designers and a list of suppliers and their addresses.
