Containing some of the most spectacular color photographs of furniture ever published, this stunning book presents a complete visual history of furniture design since the end of the Second World War.It begins in 1945 with such achievements as the highly sculptural plywood chairs of Charles and Ray Eames, who were among the first to use organic shapes derived from the natural world. Revolutionary 1950s designs, including Harry Bertoia's wire Diamond chairs?"studies in space, form and metal"?and Eero Saarinen's futuristic Pedestal Group, were followed in the late 1950s by the rise of consumerism?and the eccentricities of kitsch?which in turn gave way in the 1960s to the explosion of Pop.
A propos de l'auteur: Charlotte and Peter Fiell are leading authorities on 20th-century design and have written numerous books on the subject. Together they run a design consultancy in London.
