Competition: we're giving away five copies of the brand-new Dezeen Book of Ideas signed by Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
Published by Spotlight Press, the 208 page paperback contains 116 examples of design genius, all written in accessible, jargon-free English and lavishly illustrated with full-colour photographs.
Covering architecture, interiors and design, this unique book is stuffed full of amazing concepts and revolutionary products, all chosen by the team behind the world’s most influential online architecture and design magazine.
From mobile phones powered by fizzy drinks to cars made of fabric to houses with slides instead of staircases, Dezeen Book of Ideas represents a refreshing new approach to design publishing.
This competition has now closed.
Competition closes 1 November 2011. Five winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeenmail newsletter and at the bottom of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
Here is some more information:
