Item Description
An instant sellout on first publication, this volume has been expanded to include Thomas Heatherwick’s magnificent Olympic cauldron. Written in close collaboration with the designer himself, the book offers a highly personal, in-depth and behind-the-scenes look at all aspects of his creative, design and manufacturing processes. Each of the more than 140 fully illustrated projects is accompanied by a text explaining, in Heatherwick’s words, the design question it posed and the creative and practical processes used to address it. Projects are organized chronologically and book-ended by an introduction setting out the studio’s philosophy and a reference section.
