Patented: 1,000 Design Patents

Published By

Have you ever stopped and gazed around your office space at all the strange and mundane objects and suddenly pondered, who on earth created this ergonomic desk chair? (It was Ettore Sottsass, in case you were wondering). Author Thomas Rinaldi has the answers, and they’re all in his newly released book, Patented: 1,000 Design Patents. 

In this 1,056 page hardcover beauty, Rinaldi has included one-of-a-kind patent documents from an expansive selection of celebrated inventors, designers, architects, dreamers, and possibly even some evil geniuses. This valuable reference guide includes designs by ISamu Noguchi, Eero Saarniem, and George Nelson, alongside designs for everything from tape dispensers to desk fans, to motorcycles and everything in between.
