When switched on the Plumen gives off a warm white light and will work either shaded or even better, completely naked. Suitable for use throughout Europe and the UK the Baby Plumen works like any other high quality low energy bulb, saving you 80% on your energy bills and lasting 8 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb.

How did California come to have such a powerful influence on contemporary design? This book explores how the ideals of the 1960s counterculture morphed into the tech culture of Silicon Valley, and how ‘Designed in California’ became a global phenomenon The central premise is that California has pioneered tools of personal liberation, from LSD to surfboards and iPhones. This ambitious survey brings together political posters and portable devices, but also looks beyond hardware to explore how user interface designers in the San Francisco Bay Area are shaping some of our most common daily experiences. By turns empowering, addictive and troubling, Californian products have affected our lives to such an extent that in some ways we are all now Californians Lavishly illustrated, California: Designing Freedom features essays by leading experts in the field, such as Barry M Katz and Louise Sandhaus, as well as interviews with key designers and thinkers, including Fred Turner, Kevin Kelly and April Greiman. It also features a rediscovered lecture by Steve Jobs, introduced by Apple’s chief design officer, Jonathan Ive Edited by Justin McGuirk and Brendan McGetrick Format: softcover Size: 27 x 20.5cm Pages: 240 Illustrations: 200 colour illustrations

Marking the centenary of the Russian Revolution, Imagine Moscow: Architecture, Propaganda, Revolution explores Moscow as it was envisioned by a bold generation of architects in the 1920s and early 1930s. Featuring rarely seen material, this book – and the exhibition of the same title – portrays an idealistic vision of the Soviet capital that was never realised. Focusing on six unbuilt architectural landmarks, the book explores how these schemes reflected changes in everyday life and society following the revolution. Large-scale architectural plans, models and drawings are placed alongside propaganda posters, textiles and porcelain, contextualising the transformation of a city reborn as the new capital of the USSR and the international centre of socialism. The book also includes essays by Richard Anderson, Jean-Louis Cohen and Deyan Sudjic, which address a range of important themes in early Soviet architecture that remain relevant today. This book accompanies Imagine Moscow: Architecture, Propaganda, Revolution open at the Design Museum 15 March 2017 – 4 June 2017  Pages: 159 Dimensions:18 x 12.5 cm
