What is good design, exactly? This is a controversial question that designers and manufacturers grapple with, as do buyers and critics, and it is often only answered in retrospect.

The accomplished author Silke Pfersdorf, best known as a columnist on this very topic in Living at home, presents 101 classics that are either absolutely adored or legendary failures, or both. In entertaining passages, she recounts how each design came about, which pieces and which minds influenced one another, and shares unknown anecdotes about each creation.

In doing so, she covers the period from 1920 until today, from Le Corbusier to the Eameses to present­day designers such as Konstantin Grcic, shedding also light on the classics of the new millennium for the first time.


Born in Hanover in 1963, Silke Pfersdorf is a veteran journalist, columnist, and book author whose work appears regularly in major magazines and newspapers, including Brigitte, Stern, Madame, Cosmopolitan, DU-Schweizer Kulturmagazin, Elle Decoration, Geo Saison and Süddeutsche Zeitung. She is also known for her column Schätzchen, wo kommst du denn her? (Translation: Where did you come from, you little treasure?) in Living at Home, where she spotlights design classics on a monthly basis. Silke Pfersdorf has two grown children and lives in Hamburg.
