Observations: Moments in Design History



Observations: Moments in Design History brings together the perspectives of global writers, scholars and curators, who explore almost 400 years of design innovation across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Discover the ideas, materials and technologies that shaped global design in times of change and the key practitioners who changed the course of design history.

This is the second volume in the NGV’s Observations series, which collates the insights of historians, writers and curators from across the globe, as they discuss meaningful moments in design history through the work of such artists and designers as Josiah Wedgwood, George Nakashima, Ettore Sottsass, Seugli Lee, Salvador Dalí, Louisa Thompson-Price, Sylvia Pankhurst and Frank Lloyd Wright.

With contributions from Lis Bogdan, Hanai Hisaho, Dr Kathleen James-Chakraborty, Dr Kathryn Johnson, Simone LeAmon, Christopher Long, Donna McColm, Sarah Margolis-Pineo, Robert McCarter, Dr Sarah Piram, Dr Meha Priyadarshini, Dr Maria Quirk, Alice Rawsthorn, Misun Rheem, Catharine Rossi, Dr Carolyn Sargentson, Sarah Teasley, Divya Thakur, Dr Zoë Thomas, John Whitehead FSA and Dr Christian Witt-Dörring.
