The mid-twentieth century was one of the most popular, collectable, and dynamic periods of international design. Drawing on the inventive style of the era, Mid-Century Modern Icons of Design features exclusive illustrations of iconic mid century designs, from Eames chairs to Poul Henningsen lamps and George Nelson clocks, all rendered in a distinctive graphic style befitting the era.

Four concertina books, collected in a stylish slipcase, unfold accordion-style to feature quirky graphic representations of furniture and products accompanied on the flip side by concise, insightful text exploring the designer’s influences and the product’s place in design history. Each volume focuses on a different area. Together they comprise the perfect guide to mid-century design.
Here Design. is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in London.
