Editorial Reviews

Review

'any self-respecting design lover shouldn't miss this.' Grand Designs 'An excellent celebration of new design from around the world' Financial Times 'the young product designers featured in &fork challenge the status quo and present fresh, dynamic ideas at the forefront of design' New Design 'This compendium of the latest product designs-vetted by an international committee of critics-delights in the ingenious, inventive and irreverent.' In Style Home 'There are 100 product and furniture designers in &Fork, out from Phaidon Press next month, chosen by 10 curators and arranged alphabetically to make a contemporary and global encyclopedia of what happens when wit, whimsy and rigor are brought to bear on ordinary items.' The New York Times 'Flipping through the pages of &Fork is like being a fly on the wall for a globe-spanning and wholly improbable final design crit where the student's all receive A's.' Dwell

Format: Hardcover
This book is a very inspiring book on new designers all over the world. It gives every designer a few pages with different products and a short charactarization of his/her work. Innovative use of new materials, surprising products and beautiful photographs. The only thing I would love is more detailed drawings of products and/or constructions.

I have a very large collection of architecture and design books including Phaidon's ULTRA huge "Atlas Of Contemporary World Architecture" and never had any problems. I was very shocked at the the binding issue and contacted Phaidon directly. There was never a resolution or an answer if my book was an isolated quality issue. Disappointing.
