With a body of work that includes everything from the BMW M1 to the Nikon F3, you could say Giorgetto Giugiaro accomplished quite a bit in the world of industrial design: 

"The definitive monograph on the work of one of the world’s most celebrated car designers. This is the first monograph published on one of the most renowned automotive designers of our time, Giorgetto Giugiaro, who was named Car Designer of the Century in December 1999 and inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 2002. The book explores Giugiaro’s creative background—he comes from a family of painters and musicians—and the technical and engineering skills he cultivated with his partner Aldo Mantovani, cofounder of his company, Italdesign. He is noted for such iconic concept cars as the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta, De Tomaso Mangusta, Maserati Ghibli, Iso Grifo, Lamborghini Calà, and Ferrari GG50."
