Synopsis

One hundred iconic works of art and design, published to mark the museum's relaunch in Kensington

The Design Museum is home to the visionaries that shape our lives and create our futures: Terrence Conran, Zaha Hadid, Alvar Aalto, Jonathan Ive, David Chipperfield, Tim Berners-Lee, Louis Kahn. From the simple wooden chair to the supersonic Concord, the museum spotlights era-defining designs in architecture, fashion, interiors, transport and technology, helping us to better understand the complex relationship between form and purpose.

This 'museum in a box' contains 100 world-famous designs, including the first Apple computer, chairs by Eames, Norman Foster blueprints and Alec Issigonis' iconic Mini Cooper.

Deyan Sudjic is Director of the Design Museum. He was born in London, and studied architecture in Edinburgh. He has worked as a critic for the Observer and the Sunday Times, as the editor of Domus in Milan, as the director of the Venice Architecture Biennale, and as a curator in Glasgow, Istanbul and Copenhagen. He is the author of B is for Bauhaus, The Language of Things and The Edifice Complex.
