Women Design Pioneers from the Twentieth Century to Today
Design throughout history has been profoundly shaped and enhanced by the creativity of women. But in a narrative that eagerly promotes their male counterparts, their contributions are all too often overlooked.
From architects and product designers to textile artists and digital innovators, Women Design profiles a selection of the most dynamic female designers from the modern era, showcasing their finest work and celebrating their enduring influence. Through 21 engaging profiles, this book rediscovers and revels in the work of pioneers such as Eileen Gray, Lora Lamm and Lella Vignelli, while shining a spotlight on modern-day trailblazers including Kazuyo Sejima, Hella Jongerius and Zaha Hadid.
Richly illustrated with archival imagery, this is a rare glimpse into the working worlds of some of the most influential forces in contemporary design.
