Good design. A big design event takes place in San Francisco over the next few days. In Saturday’s Chronicle, Zahid Sardar quotes Bill Moggridge (inventor of the first laptop, a founder of IDEO, and chair of the event) as saying about the upcoming World Design Congress’ Connecting ’07 conference: “It is very much like the Olympics.”

The international biennial event, sponsored by the Industrial Designers Society of America and the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design, will include 220 international industrial designers. More information on the conference is here.

Most of Sardar’s article, however, focuses on four books:

Naoto Fukasawa by Naoto Fukasawa and other contributors
Design: Intelligence Made Visible by Stephen Bayley and Terence Conran
Piero Lissoni by Piero Lissoni
Designing Interactions by Bill Moggridge
