From architects and product designers to textile artists and digital innovators, Women Design profiles 27 of the most influential female designers from the twentieth century to the present day, showcasing their finest work and celebrating their enduring influence.
Design throughout history has been profoundly shaped and enhanced by the creativity of women; as shapers, designers, patrons and educators. But in a narrative that tends towards the promotion of their male counterparts, their contributions are all too often overlooked. Women Design rediscovers and revels in the work of such influential figures as Eileen Gray, Lora Lamm and Lella Vignelli, while shining a spotlight on modern-day trailblazers such as Kazuyo Sejima, Hella Jongerius and Neri Oxman. For both lovers of design and champions of women's achievements, this book offers a rare glimpse into the working worlds of some of the most inspiring forces in contemporary design.
