Still just two decades into his career, British designer Thomas Heatherwick has been heralded as on of the most creative talents for many years. He has produced everything from sculptural chairs, forged by the world's largest aluminium extruder, to a bridge that rolls open and closed, and an exuberant seed bank, 'hairy' with fibre-optic lights. This is the first book to present an exhaustive survey of his studio's output to date ? over 140 projects. Long in development, it has been prepared in close collaboration with Heatherwick himself, offering a highly personal, in-depth and behind-the-scenes look at all aspects of Heatherwick's creative, design and manufacturing processes. Projects are organise chronologically and bookended by an introduction setting out the studio's philosophy and a reference section. Each project is fully illustrated and accompanied by a text explaining, in Heatherwick's words, the design question it posed and the creative and practical processes used to address it.
