Tools for Living is 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. They also give the user a satisfying sense of reliability--they are the household tools that we use on a daily basis, that we come to grow fond of, tools that enhance life. Among the design classics celebrated here are Tapio Wirkkala's Kurve cutlery (1963), Enzo Mari's Formosa perpetual wall and desk calendars (1963, 1967), Björn Dahlström's Tools cookware (1998) and Ross Lovegrove's Agaricon table light (2001) and Istanbul sanitary ware (2008). Many of the objects included in Tools for Living are famous design classics that remain in production today. This comprehensive sourcebook features these objects in full-color illustrations that are augmented with full descriptions of their historic relevance and design excellence. Manufacturers' web addresses are shown for each product, so that readers can easily locate where to buy them.
