Ten words. That's all that art critic Philippe Daverio was given to outline the history of design. We'd struggle to outline last week in ten words.
Daverio's series of lectures at the Polytechnic University of Milan have been simplified further still by the talented design work of Matteo Morelli and Giovanni Manzini in their series, Utopia.
From the highly conceptual to core design styles, each of Daverio's terms has received an artful illustration - in a fittingly minimal style.
If only the eleventh term had been Minimalism.
