The Bookshelf: “DesignPOP” By Lisa S. RobertsAuthor:Lindsey Shook
You may recognize former architect turned high-design enthusiast and connoiseur, Lisa S. Roberts, from her 2011 TV series, My Design Life. Just as in her show, the reigning queen of cool aims to bridge the gap between the design world and the general public in her latest book, “DesignPOP.” Chronicling all the best design inventions created from the year 2000 on, we bet there’ll be a handful of products in this book that you never even knew existed.
According to Lisa, “My mission is to spread the gospel of good design in a way that is accessible to everyone. It is the culmination of years of exploration of design through my books, TV show, lectures, website, collections, and travels.”
Through quippy copy and eye-popping imagery, “DesignPOP” presents 82 landmark, game-changing products (from the bladeless Dyson fan to Plumen lightbulbs, the Juicy Salif juicer, Target pill bottles, and everything in between), arguing their importance while still playing with the concepts of shape, form, functionality, and sustainability.
This book is a must for design enthusiasts of all varieties. You can buy a copy of “DesignPOP” here, $35.
