DesignObserver’s Eve M. Kahn reviews Emily Pillotin’s Design Revolution, making sure not to gloss over any problems the book brings up. Pillotin has compiled over 100 designs that make an impact on people – or, in fact, empower people. As Kahn points out, these range from wickedly expensive tents to food packaging. All well and good, but perhaps not lending to a concise catalog of design or a precise definition of empowerment.

Regardless of downfall, the 26-year old designer has managed to produce an approachable tome on design. This, in and of itself, should be applauded to a degree. Read the full review here.
