The Authority of Everyday Objects: A Cultural History of West German Industrial Design.
Betts, Paul.
The Authority of Everyday Objects: A Cultural History of West German Industrial Design.
From the Werkbund to the Bauhaus to Braun, from furniture to automobiles to consumer appliances, twentieth-century industrial design is closely associated with Germany. The Authority of Everyday Objects details how the postwar period gave rise to a new design culture comprising a sprawling network of diverse interest groups who all identified industrial design as a vital means of economic recovery, social reform, and even moral regeneration.
