a€œOccasionally you come across a book that does everything it claims - and then some. This is onea€ (Blueprint) Architects have been responsible for many of the modern furniture classics of the 20th century - Mies's Barcelona Chair, Eileen Gray's side table and Le Corbusier's chaise longue. Furniture and Architecture takes a unique look at the relationship between architects and furniture design. Focusing not only on classic mid-20th-century design i.e. Eames, Mies, Le Corbusier and Gropius, it also provides a unique insight into who will produce the next generation of classics by asking an international-array of established designers to give their tips for the top young architect-designers. In additional it includes exclusive interviews with high-profile architects as well as with key figures in furniture manufacture and retail. A directory of specialist retailers, who sell architect-designed furniture, makes this an invaluable resource for architects and the interested public. The book includes comprehensive articles and images of popular modernist architects such as Erno Goldfinger, Arne Jacobsen and Eero Saarinen It also features interviews with architects Alvaro Siza, David Adjaye and Selfridges director Vittore Radice Lavishly illustrated with many full-colour images Contains a directory of specialist retailers selling architect-designed furnitureKnoll International GmbH .49 71 442 01243 New Zealand, Bromhead Design. ...
