    DescriptionNaoto Fukasawa (b.1956) is one of the best-known Japanese product designers working today. His simple, restrained and user-friendly products appeal to people's shared experience of things. The wall-mounted CD player he designed for MUJI in 1999, based on the image of a kitchen fan, was selected into MoMA's design collection in 2005 The book is the first survey on Fukasawa's work to be published in English. Edited by Fukasawa himself, and with contributions by artists, designers and lecturers, such as Antony Gormley and Jasper Morrison, the book introduces the reader to the designer's particular and innovative design approach. Illustrated with newly commissioned photography, the book showcases over 100 products, which Fukasawa elucidates with a clever combination of images and words

    Review quote
    'a few truly great designers [...] are not hindered by product conventions or trends, and bring a distinct vision to bear upon any problem to create something different. Naoto Fuksawa is on of these designers. ... At a time when design can often seem to be heading off into abstracted self-expression, the clarity and intelligence that Fukaswa brings to bear on his work is welcome and much-needed.' Design Week 'It's rare to flick though a book of product design and find that you want to own - that you need to own - almost everything in it, but this monograph [...] is one such book. ... [Fukasawa's] products contain the irresistible combination of being ingeniously clever while looking fabulous enough to make your neighbours green with envy.' Creative Review 'one of the first true design heroes of the 21st century. ... [a] must-have new monograph' Elle Decoration 'well illustrated throughout and interspersed with thought-provoking insights into Fukasawa's own philosophy of design ... offers an enlightening glimpse inside the mind of one of the most unpredictable contemporary product designers.'
