Stephen Bayley is a recognized authority on design and culture. He has been a consultant to big-name companies such as Coca-Cola, BMW, Absolut, Volkswagen Audi, and Ford. His writing appears in the Times, the Daily Mail, the Observer, the Evening Standard, the Los Angeles Times, GQ, and other publications. He has appeared on broadcasts of Today, Newsnight, and London Tonight, among others. Stephen Bayley returns to our Cool Friends page to talk about his new book, which he coauthored with Terence Conran, Design: Intelligence Made Visible (British cover). When Tom read it, he wrote in this blog entry, "Oh, what a wonder!! I'm hooked on design all over again!!" Read the Cool Friends interview, and possibly start your own journey on the same path.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
