Part design manifesto, part catalogue raisonné, Dyson on Design is the first comprehensive book on the work and achievements of Sir James Dyson, Britain’s most inspirational design entrepreneur.

Having successfully launched his revolutionary bagless vacuum cleaner in the early 1980s, Dyson has gone on to create a plethora of disruptive technologies that have transformed the appliances of everyday life – from hand dryers and electric fans to hairdryers and robotic cleaners.

This book is not only about what James Dyson has accomplished, but what he thinks good design is all about and how engineering can be used to make a better tomorrow. Richly illustrated with numerous previously unpublished photographs, drawings and other archival material, this beautifully designed book reveals Dyson’s hard-won secrets for entrepreneurial success and is essential reading for anyone interested in the transformative power of design.
