Created by Phaidon, 200 years of design classics is now available on the iPad. The application offers access to an encyclopedic, illustrated history of 1,000 timeless designs by not only renowned designers, such as Marcel Breuer, Achille Castiglioni, Le Corbusier, Jasper Morrison, Dieter Rams, Eero Saarinen, and Philippe Starck but also anonymously designed pieces, such as the clothes peg, the corkscrew, and the chopstick, that have stood the test of time. Unfortunately, I am yet to own an iPad, but if there was an app I would purchase first it would be this. Whilst I am somewhat sceptical of "beautifully rendered, 3D environment", having an access to library of this size sounds like a wonderful Sunday eve sofa chill.
