Are you obsessed with Apple and more importantly, Jony Ive? Do you know someone who is, or need to buy that Apple geek in your life a holiday gift? Check out Apple Design from Friedrich von Borries.
[quote]Following an analysis of the forms and functions of the featured Apple products, the book provides an explanation of the innovative production methods and materials applied. Last but not least, it examines Apple design’s overt references to the simplified forms of the products manufactured by the great German brand Braun, and enumerates the famous “Ten Rules for Good Design” promulgated by the company’s chief designer, Dieter Rams, showing in each case how Apple has deployed and fulfilled them.[/quote]
You don’t have to be in love with great industrial design to get something out of this book, but if you are in love with design then this is a must-have for your coffee table.
