Now: Perception of Time and Contemporary Design addresses the presence and incorporation of temporality in contemporary design. Essays by leading design curators and scholars examine objects designed to measure time, or reverse it (in the case of beauty products); objects that are designed to mimic times past, and objects addressing of-the-moment issues such as sustainability and the green movement. Among the designers and design companies whose works are surveyed here are Yves Behar, Pieke Bergmanns, Max Bill, Natalia Brilli, Nacho Carbonell, Michel Charlot, Oscar Diaz, Delphine Frey, Front Design, Martí Guixé, Studio Gorm, Susanna Hertrich, Wassily Kandinsky, Joris Laarmann, Via Lewandowski, T.G. Libertiny, Alexa Lixfeld, Thomas Lommée, Martin Margiela, Jo Meesters, Sander Mulder, Shinichiro Ogata, Verner Panton, Studio Job, Wieki Somers, Philippe Starck, Mattheo Tunn, Bas van der Veer, Anders Wilhelmson, Samuel Wilkinson and Bethan L. Wood.
