In this elegant, efficient introduction to German design, the big ideas, personalities and objects of German design and industrial culture are presented in a glossary format, with concise and readable entries for a wide range of topics, all richly illustrated with beautiful images. Also included is an interview between Michael Mauer (chief designer of the VW Group) and the late Martin Roth (a giant of the cultural industry), offering a more personal perspective on German design.

Drawing on objects from the collections of some of Germany's most significant museums (the Vitra Design Museum, the Neue Sammlung, the Porsche Museum and the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt), German Design Glossary traces the development of German design from the 1950s to the present day, looking at more than six decades of design history and pointing the way toward the future of German design.
