How I fell out of love with design


How I fell out of love with design The book is a collection of essays in which the Polish artist and writer reflects on the past and present of design. Through the prism of a variety of things - from movie posters to Lego, from voting forms to bottles and cameras the author explores how the design aesthetic changed against the background of the historical shifts of the 1980s and 1990s. Keeping a delicate balance between nostalgia and irony, he describes the realities of communist Poland, revealing many similarities with Soviet reality. This witty and fascinating book is intended for a wide range of readers — for anyone who has thought about why the objects around us look like this and not otherwise.
