App Store Description

An authoritative and meticulously researched collection of design classics charting the story of product design over the past 200 years, many of which are largely unchanged and still in production today.

The app gives access to an encyclopaedic, illustrated history of 1,000 timeless design classics by such renowned designers as Marcel Breuer, Achille Castiglioni, Le Corbusier, Jasper Morrison, Dieter Rams, Eero Saarinen, and Philippe Starck. Also included are anonymously designed pieces, such as the clothes peg, the corkscrew, and the chopstick, that have stood the test of time.

Organised chronologically and easily accessible via a timeline, the app includes archival photographs, original sketches, patents, prototypes and informative text about the product, designer, manufacturer and the object’s historical context.
