Discover the dazzling history of colour in design, from Bauhaus to Memphis and beyond with this stunning new book, A Century of Colour in Design.

This curated anthology of furniture, fabric, lights and decorative objects shows how colour has defined key designs over the last century. From the pale blue Anglepoise lamp to Marimekko’s hot-red poppy print and the wine-red Bookworm Bookshelf, this book 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 and objects.

The stunning, bold cover also makes A Century of Colour in Design the perfect coffee table book for the stylish home.

      Thrilled with this purchase. So neatly crafted and informative in history and design. A well thought out timeline of beautiful pieces from 1920-2020. A gorgeous coffee table addition.
