9780141031170: The Language of Things

In The Language of Things Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum, decodes the things around us: their hidden meanings, our relationship with them, how they shape our lives and why we desire them. Design is everywhere. It seduces, pleases and inspires us. It makes us part with our money. It defines who we think we are. An iPhone, an anglepoise lamp, a Picasso, a banknote, an Armani suit, a William Morris textile, a Lucky Strike packet, a spacecraft - every object tells a story. And understanding their stories offers us a whole new way of seeing the world. 'Articulate and wonderfully knowledgeable ... for anyone who takes an interest in the world around us'
  Time Out 'A nightmare vision of a world drowning in objects ... witty, well observed and wide-ranging'
  Guardian 'An elegant, witty and free-ranging survey, from Thomas Chippendale's ponderous 18th-century manor-house furnishings to Jonathan Ive's sprightly Macintosh iBooks'
  Daily Telegraph 'Lively ... engaging'
  Evening Standard 'Readable, sharp and worthwhile'
