A photo extravaganza of pattern used in modern design. From small household objects to entire facades, the book entitled Patterns in Design, Art and Architecture examines the trend toward the use of pattern everywhere.
It is illustrated with work by Hella Jongerius, Tord Boontje, Michael Lin, Olaf Nicolai, and Sauerbruch Hutton. Edited by Petra Schmidt of Form, the book is described as "lavish and extravagant as the patterns themselves".
