AUTHOR

Forty, Adrian

SUMMARY

Objects of Desire looks at the appearance of consumer goods in the 200 years since the introduction of mechanized production, whether in Josiah Wedgewood's use of neo-classicism for his industrially manufactured pottery or the development of appropriate forms for wirelesses. The argument is illustrated with examples ranging from penknives to computers and from sewing machines to railway carriages.In opening up new ways of appraising the man-made world around us, Objects of Desire is required reading for anyone who has any involvement with design and a revealing document about our society.Forty, Adrian is the author of 'Objects of Desire Design and Society Since 1750' with ISBN 9780500274125 and ISBN 0500274126.
