Whether it’s a kitchen appliance or an elegant piece of furniture, great design combines form and function to make everyday life more enjoyable, aesthetically pleasing, and comfortable. Contemporary Design Review curates some of the finest contemporary designs around the globe across various design genres, from architecture to product design, to interior and garden design.

And, of course, we also visit interior shops and showrooms. All the designs in the book are shown in careful detail, including rich product descriptions, as well as over 300 brilliant photographs. Lively behind-the-scenes profiles add a revealing perspective on the designers shaping our today and tomorrow.
