Twentieth-Century Furniture is an authoritative, passionate and beautifully illustrated guide to the multifarious talents of international furniture designers and manufacturers of the past 100 years, and revels in the intrinsic beauty of skilfully crafted pieces. The explosion in styles, initiated by technical progress and fashions in architecture, design and interiors, is catalogued in this chronological overview of the century's masterpieces, from the handmade vernacular styles of the Arts and Crafts Movement and Art Deco, through the early Modernists to the colourful and chaotic world of Pop Art, and finally to today's innovative and experimental designs. With over 230 classics of modern design, Twentieth-Century Furniture features the work of the world's most influential and talented designers, including Philippe Starck, Henry van der Velde, Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, Carlo Mollino, Charles and Ray Eames, David Linley, Matthew Rice, Frank Gehry, Tom Dixon and Ron Arad. Written by Fiona and Keith Baker, experts in the field of furniture design, and richly illustrated with over 230 photographs, Twentieth-Century Furniture is an accessible and authoritative celebration of 100 years of design.
