This highly acclaimed volume features hundreds of illustrations, most in full color, of the best and most exciting furniture, tableware, textiles, and electrical and consumer products. Selected from over 3,500 submissions, the distinguished Japanese architect Arata Isozaki has chosen 448 projects representing more than 300 designers and design teams for this edition. From chairs to loudspeakers, the bold use of color, material, shape, texture, and special finishes - even in pieces intended for mass production - powerfully mark much of the most interesting new design.
