A Century of Colour in Design: 250 Innovative Objects & the Stories Behind Them

David Harrison

Discover the dazzling history of colour in design, from Bauhaus to Memphis and beyond.

From the pale blue Anglepoise lamp to Marimekko’s hot-red poppy print and the wine-red Bookworm Bookshelf, this curated anthology includes classics, future classics and equally exciting new pieces that will be a discovery for readers.

Broad in its scope, A Century of Colour in Design delivers a snapshot of 20th-century history through the lens of design, exploring the origins and rationale behind the design and colouration of some of the century’s most iconic furniture, fabric, lights and decorative objects.

‘One sits more comfortably on a colour that one likes.’
