Future Present documents a selection of Millennium Products, chosen by the UK's Design Council as a showcase of ground-breaking work by Britain's leading designers, inventors, manufacturers and retailers. United in their excellence, these products exemplify fantastic, futuristic or radically simple solutions to age-old problems and everyday needs. Ranging from 'cowslips' [plastic shoes designed to cure cattle with foot rot] to a water container for Oxfam, the book shows how these products are turning today into the future. Introduced by John Sorrell and designed by Angus Hyland of Pentagram, London. " ... brilliant examples of innovation, creativity and design ... examples of human endeavour, passion and conviction which illuminate the power of entrepreneurial spirit." —John Sorrell, Ex-Chairman, Design Council
