Release Date: 2012
Genre:

Designer gestalten die Welt, in der wir leben: Der Stuhl, auf dem wir sitzen, die Lampe, die uns beim Lesen leuchtet, und der Computer, mit dem wir arbeiten, sind wohl durchdachte und ästhetisch optimierte Produkte, die nicht nur funktional und effizient sind, sondern auch dem Zeitgeist entsprechen und unserer Individualität Ausdruck verleihen. '50 Designer, die man kennen sollte' stellt die wichtigsten Designer der Moderne vor: angefangen bei Michael Thonet, dem Entwickler der Bugholzstühle, über die Gestalter des Bauhauses, stilprägende Künstler wie Alvar Aalto und Le Corbusier bis hin zu Marken wie Apple, die das Formempfinden ganzer Generationen beeinflusst haben. In kurzen und prägnanten Texten werden die Designer mit ihren wichtigsten Arbeiten vorgestellt. Eine Zeitleiste bietet einen übergreifenden historischen Kontext.
