A curated look at the complete evolution of design, from its origins in early cultures to today, and the ultimate companion for design and culture mavens, produced in association with the Smithsonian.

Design: The Definitive Visual History lays out the complete evolution of design, from its origins in early cultures to the contemporary design—physical and digital—of today. This comprehensive volume covers every major design movement, along with the iconic designers and manufacturers who influenced everyday life through the objects and buildings they created.

Arranged chronologically, Design moves decade-by-decade from the 1850s onward to explore the cultural, social, political, economic, and technological forces in the world at large and shows how these factors influenced movements and styles in design. Gorgeous catalogues of objects demonstrate how design in turn has influenced the everyday life, through architecture, fashion, furniture, ceramics, glassware, lighting, fabrics, electronic equipment, and more.

With profiles of famous designers such as Alvar Aalto, Frank Gehry, and Philippe Starck and stunning images of buildings and interiors, this book is a true celebration of classic design across the centuries.
