Why are some designs more successful and influential than others?

This book showcases eighty exceptional creations, from the Polaroid Land camera and the Sony Walkman to the Coca- Cola bottle and Converse All Stars. Featuring designers as diverse as Le Corbusier, Dieter Rams and Philippe Starck, this insightful book highlights the elements of each design that distinguish it from its peers.

Whether it is the functionality of Walter Hunt’s safety pin from 1849, the innovative use of materials in a Louis Vuitton trunk or the aesthetic appeal of a René Lalique vase, the book explains why these designs have stood the test of time.
