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.

Danish Lights: 1920 to Now

By Malene Lytken.

Some of the greatest innovations in modern lamp design were made in Denmark

One of the most iconic examples of 20th-century Danish design is the PH lamp, designed by Poul Henningsen in 1925. Combining functionalism with aesthetic innovation, the lamp’s sleek and economical design won a gold medal at that year’s International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris. Taking this lamp as its point of departure, Danish Lights examines the histories of 100 lamp designs dating back to the 19th century.

By way of its individual case studies, the book provides a detailed survey of the development of lamp . . . .go to book page >>
