Offering an insight into current developments in the design world, the author has incorporated fifteen in-depth studies on product design. She writes. ’When faced with such a plethora of desirable objects, it’s all too easy to begin to think that they are created overnight; the studies aim to readdress this misconception by giving some idea of the complexities involved in bringing a design to fruition’.
