Containing some of the most spectacular colour photographs of furniture ever published, this book presents a visual history of furniture design from 1945 to the post-modern era.
In this exciting period new materials and techniques created previously undreamed-of possibilities which were exploited to the full by innovative furniture designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen and Ettore Sottsass. New styles include the factory lights and scaffolding supports of High-Tech, the Craft Revival, Art Furniture and Ergonomic styling, with each trend continuing to show intriguing national and regional differences.
This stunning survey has become the standard work on the furniture of the entire period: every piece included is able to stand for all time as a classic work of design. Illustrated with over 140 colour reproductions, and detailed descriptions, it is completed by a comprehensive reference section, detailed designer biographies, a bibliography, advice on collecting and a list of retail outlets and museums.
