About this item

The chaise-longue by Le Corbusier, the radio by Rams, the chair by Eames – designers make things into cult objects and become icons themselves. But who knows which coupé was designed by Frua, which limousine by Engel, which station wagon by Opron?

For a long time, car design was considered to be anonymous, the designers stood in the shadow of the perception of the design, even though their designs can be found on the roads in millions. This richly illustrated book captures the origin of a profession and maps the development of car design based on a comprehensive introduction and the career biographies of over 200 selected designers who contributed to the design of cars and many different associated products in the USA, Europe, and Japan between 1900 and 2000.
