12 Gegenstaende

Twelve objects tell a hundred years of industrial design history. The book presents products that were made
between 1914 and 2004 and changed people’s everyday lives, designs that were marketed with new strategies,
and objects that convey the way of life of a particular decade. Whether it is the Wonder Bowls by Earl Silas Tupper, the Valentine typewriter by Ettore Sottsass, or
the iPod mini byJonathan Ive – design icons are brought to life in twelve contributions and through interviews
with renowned designers and authors.
