New Zealand By Design: A History NZ Product Design
New Zealand By Design
by Michael Smythe

Signed and dedication from author to ex-owner

This comprehensive, landmark book surveys products our society has made since pre European times. Begining with ingenious Maori tools, traps, lures and more, it moves to pioneer-era inventions, the industrial and agricultural inventions of early entrepreneurs such as Hayes Machinery and the products of the housewife's friends - Shacklock and Fisher and Paykel - to our modern era, with its sophisticated products such as the Yike bike and Formway furniture, products which hold their own in international company. Many of the hundreds of products discussed are items we all use, or our parents and our grandparents used, every day: wool pressers, bathroom sinks, petrol cans, bicycles, stoves, washing machines, electric kettles, TVs and radios, crockpots, rocking chairs, industrial dredges, dishwashers, forestry tools, spinning wheels, office chairs, outdoor seating ,rubbish bins, children's toys, heaters, electric fences, stock drenching guns, gumboots, buses. the list goes on and on.
