"This book surveys applied arts and industrial design from the eighteenth century to the present day, exploring the dynamic relationship between design and manufacturing, and the technological, social, and commercial context in which this relationship developed." "Wide-ranging examples of products and graphic design are shown - and their significance within the history of design explained - including vessels and other objects made from glass, ceramics, plastic, or metal, as well as tableware, furniture, textiles, lighting, housings for electric appliances, machines and equipment, cars, tools, books, posters, magazines, illustrations, advertisements, and digital information. The book also explores the impact of a wealth of new manmade industrial materials on the course of modern design - from steel to titanium, plywood to plastic, cotton to nylon, wire to transistors, and from microprocessors to nanotubes."--BOOK JACKET.
