300 Years of Industrial Design by Aage Lund Jensen
This is a pictorial overview of the development of design and materials in the past 300 years, which have produced a wealth of innovative industrial design. Items such as the garden trug and bicycles, the Wedgwood teapot and milk bottles were all developed during these centuries and yet are still in use today. In this book, the authors look over this timespan and select examples of fine wood, glass, metal and ceramic designs on a decade by decade basis. They put each design into the context of the time it was developed and illustrate each item with scale drawings, photographs and catalogue entries from the period. It gives a picture of their interrelationship and highlights the importance between different design disciplines.
