A Century of Colour in Design


By David Harrison

This book tracks the trend towards colour chronologically from its intellectual roots in the Bauhaus movement to the current day. Eight standalone profiles showcase designers who have applied colour in inventive ways, and short texts contextualise each of the 250 objects covered.

Novel in its approach, A Century of Colour in Design presents an essential short-form history of the increasingly innovative use of colour in contemporary furniture, lighting and decorative objects for all with an interest in design, culture, history and colour.
