The collection »design« from the Arte edition by absolut Medien tells the story of the 20th century by presenting several industrial buildings and combines the art of designing with its sociological context. Each product has shaped its time and does not only reflects this, but anticipates also future developments.

DESIGN by absolut Medien is a film series created by Luciano Rigolini. It presents industrial objects and buildings and based on this tells the history of the 20th century. In the focus are especially objects that were aesthetic and technological innovations, that reflected their time and at the same time were ahead of their time.

Products that met the spirit of the age
