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.
Throughout history, design has been profoundly shaped and enhanced by women's creativity; as practitioners, commentators, educators, and commissioners. But their contributions are often overlooked in a narrative that eagerly promotes their male counterparts. Through 21 engaging profiles, Women 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 Kazuyo Sejima, Hella Jongerius, and Neri Oxman. Richly illustrated with archival imagery, this is a rare glimpse into the working worlds of some of the most influential forces in contemporary design.
