Editorial Reviews


This retrospective of the website Design Observer, which radically reinvented contemporary criticism when it debuted in 2003, is perfectly timed as the design industry re-examines the state of its discourse. —Curbed


Design Observer has been a dynamic force in design in the last fifteen years by fueling debate on important and provocative contemporary issues, and reviving interest in unfairly obscure characters or episodes from design history. What a thrill to read it again in a book.

Alice Rawsthorn, author of Design as an Attitude.
