about

From architects and product designers to textile artists and digital innovators, Women Design profiles a selection of the most dynamic female designers from the modern era, showcasing their finest work and celebrating their enduring influence.

Design throughout history has been profoundly shaped and enhanced by the creativity of women; as practitioners, commentators, educators and commissioners. But in a narrative that eagerly promotes their male counterparts, their contributions are all too often overlooked.

Women Design seeks to redress that balance, delving into the lives and works of some of the most talented design minds of the 20th and 21st centuries, from architects and artists to designers of all stripes.

Through 21 engaging profilesWomen Design rediscovers and revels in the work of pioneers such as Eileen Gray, Lora Lamm and Lella Vignelli, while shining a spotlight on modern-day trailblazers including Kazuyo Sejima, Hella Jongerius and Neri Oxman.

Richly illustrated with beautiful archival imagery, this is a rare glimpse into the working worlds of some of the most influential forces in contemporary design. Detailed text from design historian Libby Sellers brings the lives and work of these fascinating women to life, exploring how they overcame the challenges of working in a male-dominated world in order to see their groundbreaking creative visions realised.

This book is an invaluable work, a must-read for anyone who claims to know about design, and an inspiring insight into the lives and legacies of 21 truly brilliant women whose work has irrevocably shaped the world around us today.
