Five short films encapsulating the essence of design from the 1960s to the 2000s. As well as focusing on architecture, fashion, furniture and industry there is also a feature on five different Renaults, each embodying the unique and distinct flavour of each decade. Illustrated using a mix of evocative archive and unique new shots this examination is intercut with interviews from leading industry experts, Englishman Stephen Bayley and Frenchman Pascal Montfort. While these two debate the interplay between design and society, the cars of Renault are put under the spotlight in an examination of the best of French car design. The Renault 8, Renault 5, Fuego, Twingo and Vel Satis are all appraised for their contribution to automobile design over this incredible fifty year period.
