1000 New Designs 2 and Where to Find Them
by Jennifer Hudson

1000 New Designs 2 and Where to Find Them, by Jennifer Hudson and published by Laurence King in March 2010 is a comprehensive round-up of the best in contemporary design.

Jennifer Hudson has brought together a huge range of striking new products in this book. Chapters include: Tables and chairs; Sofas and beds; Storage; Kitchens and bathrooms; Tableware; Textiles; Lighting; Electronics; and more.

Works by the finest international talents, such as Konstantin Grcic, Tokujin Yoshioka, Ron Arad, Patricia Urquiola and Pearson Lloyd, are featured, along with commentaries giving an insight into current developments in design.

The author has also incorporated 15 in-depth studies on selected products. She writes: ‘When faced with such a plethora of desirable objects, it’s all too easy to begin to think that they are created overnight; the studies aim to readdress this misconception by giving some idea of the complexities involved in bringing a design to fruition.’

Web addresses and full specifications are provided for each product, making sourcing quick and easy.

Jennifer Hudson is an author, editor and researcher in the fields of contemporary design and architecture, and for 15 years was the general editor of The International Design Yearbook.
