Product Design Bookshelf

Emily Pilloton, author of Design Revolution, defines design as “problem-solving with grace and foresight.” No discipline is free from design criteria: the manufactured objects that are the building blocks of our environment can be badly designed, indifferently designed or designed “with grace and foresight.” Below is a selection of our finest books on product, ranging from monographs on individual designers and companies to surveys of design genres such as watch and chair design.
