Starting Young

Many come to learn about the fields of design later in life, once they are off to college and later. D.E.S.I.G.N, a book which lovingly compiles stories of functional object design into a storybook fashion aims to teach kids at an early age what its all about. The fun book covers 69 of the most innovative household items created in the last 150 years, detailing the designers, their backgrounds, and how the products came to be, alongside quirky illustrations. From Marcel Wanders’ SkyGarden Light to Arne Jacobsen’s Ant Chair, each is broken down in an understandable and digestible way – for both children and adults to learn about design.
