I see the book as recommended reading for courses in contemporary art... Certainly of international interest. Excellent.' - Barry Schwabsky, European Reviews Editor, ArtForum"

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Julia Kostreva on November 16, 2008
Format: Paperback
I was expecting something more current date - there are a lot of new movements since the 90s where the line between the terms 'artist' and 'designer' have become blurred...

This book didn't really talk about anything new. It addressed topics which we already have some notion of the design/art blur. But in all cases of this book, I would still call it design. Chapters: 1. pattern 2. furniture 3. interiors 4. architecture --- I was ready to read about something beyond that, something that showcases what's happening now...
