Cartier: The Tank Watch

Posted

A very specific publication only really for the connoisseur. The book looks in detail at one of the finest watches of our time. Still produced today the “tank” is a master class in design and illustrates perfectly the ethos behind the Bauhaus principal that being the love of machine art. The watch itself is based on the intricacies and “track” of a World War 1 tank and is beautifully illustrated in this book. Much cheaper than buying the real thing, a good tool for the teacher looking a bit deeper into the classic design movements (excuse the pun).

Marc Newson

Posted

Without doubt my favourite designer. Ex Surfer Marc Newson literally burst onto the design scene with his fantastic loungers that were made using the very same technology implemented in surfboard manufacture. I went to his exhibition at the Design Museum and was simply blown away by his products, his small car for Ford was stunning and I have referred to it more than once in my classroom. The layout of the book is excellent and in design terms is a very important publication; personally it is one of the most used books in my design library.
