Car Design Asia is the third volume in a series on automotive history. Learn how this continent rose to the top in car manufacturing. Starting with Japan in the 1950s, and in later decades Korea and China, Asian automotive technology has gradually become a presence to be reckoned with on the international stage. Initially a smaller player compared to Europe and the United States, Asia's automobile industry has consistently grown to its current status as one of the most dynamic global forces in terms of form and function. At the forefront of both technology and design, Asian cars include some of the most commercially successful automobiles ever built.
This handsome gift set is comprised of three beautifully designed volumes, each of which describes and illustrates the unique history of Asia, America, and Europe's contribution to automobile design and culture. Renowned authority Paolo Tumminelli is an internationally recognized authority on the subject. The perfect gift for car enthusiasts.
The chaise-longue by Le Corbusier, the radio by Rams, the chair by Eames – designers make things into cult objects and become icons themselves. But who knows which coupé was designed by Frua, which limousine by Engel, which station wagon by Opron? For a long time, car design was considered to be anonymous, the designers stood in the shadow of the perception of the design, even though their designs can be found on the roads in millions. This richly illustrated book captures the origin of a profession and maps the development of car design based on a comprehensive introduction and the career biographies of over 200 selected designers who contributed to the design of cars and many different associated products in the USA, Europe, and Japan between 1900 and 2000.

The automobile sector is one of the most archetypal global industries and is seen by many as one of the main drivers behind the homogenisation of world markets due to firms' internationalization strategies and the social practices that firms impose. This book argues that this is not entirely the case due to the heterogeneity of firms and the diversity of strategies pursued. It highlights the diversity and forms of internationalization and the preference for regionalization rather than globalization that has occurred over the past decade. This book looks specifically at the American and Asian car industry.
