Tools for Living: A Sourcebook of Iconic Designs for the Home.
Fiell, Charlotte and Peter.
Tools for Living: A Sourcebook of Iconic Designs for the Home.
A book about excellence in domestic design, from chef knives and pots and pans, to door handles and bathroom taps, to home-office furniture and garden tools. Well-designed objects not only offer superior performance but also look better and last longer, which ultimately means that they are more sustainable and provide better value for money. Among the design classics celebrated here are Tapio Wirkkala's Kurve cutlery (1963), Enzo Mari's Formosa perpetual wall and desk calendars (1963, 1967), Bjorn Dahlstrom's Tools cookware (1998) and Ross Lovegrove's Agaricon table light (2001) and Istanbul sanitary ware (2008).
