Objects constitute a taxonomy shaped by human needs, possibilities - and dreams. Design manifests personal, local and international cultural values and meanings. Being man-made, design objects reflect the demands and values of the creator's time. Perpetually changing instrumental needs constantly mould the shapes and features of objects. On the other hand, objects more and more dictate the very way we live and, in fact, even govern modern culture. Fashion, trends in life styles and technological development give rise to all new forms and items The old ones get supplanted, become extinct, degenerate into waste – and may finally transform into rare quality class objects, antique. The book is a visionary insight on the classification and evolutional struggle of tools. Pekka Harni is an architect and industrial designer who works widely on applied art. International retailers!
