Why do so many designs fail to pass the everyday test? Is beauty just a question of looks, or could there be more to it than meets the eye? What makes a good object, and how come some objects get better with time?
These are a few of the questions explored by noted designers Naoto Fukasawa and Jasper Morrison in this beautifully produced and illustrated book. Fukasawa and Morrison have selected over 200 quietly extraordinary products both new and old that embody the concept of Super Normal-the meeting point of beauty, utility, and the familiar. Super Normal is essential reading for anyone interested in the cultural significance of design or those who simply want to view the everyday objects that surround them in a new way.
