About this title


This unique survey of the many forms and uses of a material originally developed as a mere "substitute" is an eye-opening journey from early bakelite, celluloid and linoleum to the space age polymers in use today.A selection of 120 objects traces the progress of this material from late 19th century efforts to Art Deco Modernism on to the loud colors and unconventional forms of the fifties and sixties and through to the bold forms and constructions of contemporary plastics design.Not concerned with the technical development of the material, this survey illustrates and celebrates the design of objects in plastic.

Product Description:

This book has a major emphasis on the 50s, 60s, and 70s with their enthusiasm for new materials, garish colours, and unconventional forms.
