    Title: Design Generation: How Peter Haythornthwaite Shaped NZ’s Design-led Enterprise
    Author: SMYTHE MICHAEL

    This book tells the story of one of New Zealand’s most influential industrial designers. Spanning five decades, Design Generation documents the development of Haythornthwaite’s career as a designer through his education, employment and private practices and his notable contribution to the wider field of design as an industry leader. Vivid case studies of Haythornthwaite’s work illustrate the extraordinary breadth of design projects he developed, many of which will be familiar for the reader.
    It will be launched with an exhibition in March 2018 as part of Objectspace’s Masters of Craft series, Design Generation charts the development and maturation of industrial design as a discipline in New Zealand along with the increasingly globalised forces that have influenced the way things are designed, produced and consumed in this part of the world.
