Deyan Sudjic

An inspiring journey through the world of design from a leading expert in the field.

Deyan Sudjic explores the ideas, people, places, objects and movements that have kept him engaged and curious over a life's work. He explores the effects of moving from mechanical to digital objects, the relationship between architecture and design, and the sensibilities of those who produce it. For those who contemplate design, Sudjic's choices offer a route from Ettore Sottsass to Olivetti, Kaplicky, Rams and the zip, building a composite portrait of an important and varied discipline.

Deyan Sudjic is Director of the Design Museum in London. Founded in 1989, the Design Museum is the UK's cultural champion of design and has won international acclaim for exhibitions of modern design history and contemporary design. Before joining the Design Museum in August 2006, Deyan Sudjic was Dean of the Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design at Kingston University, Visiting Professor at the Royal College of Art and The Observer design and architecture writer. He is the author of The Language of Things and The Edifice Complex which together have been translated into 14 languages.
