Retro is hip, and vintage is cult. The esthetics of past eras are back in style in the world of fashion, as well as interior and product design. Brands successfully reissue old originals, while creative profession¬als around the world design innovative products with a retro look. Their scope of inspiration extends from Bauhaus to Hip-Hop.

This volume presents comebacks and new interpretations, products and styles that are more fashionable today than ever before. Between the opposing poles of nostalgia and high-tech, the designers prove their niftiness and sense of humor. Whether kidney-shaped tables, aviator glasses, or printable radios, the past is returning full of charm and with a twinkle in the eye. Retro & Vintage Design serves as a reference book of design history and a source of inspiration for trend-setters at the same time.
