I was going through some old magazines the other day when I came across this: Design Matrix of the 20th Century. It’s from a March 2002 issue of the no-longer-existant Studio Voice (except as an app). I took it to photoshop and redid it in English so I apologize if it’s not perfect.
But it’s a great reference if you need a quick history on a certain country’s industrial design!
