Catalogs Tubular Steel Furniture

Autor: Michaela Bosewitz

Número de Páginas: 185

The period between the two world wars saw a revolution in the use of new materials in building and design: concrete and steel. Tubular steel came into use for household furnishings through designers such as Marcel Breuer, Mart Stam and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Maximum utility, simple, clear forms and low price levels were considered the essentials of well-designed consumer goods. The fashionable modern appeal, functionality and versatility of tubular steel furniture helped spread its popularity, and it became a symbol of modernism. Among the major Czech producers of metal furniture were the factories of Hynek Gottwald, Mücke-Melder, Thonet-Mundus, Slezák and Vichr & Co. They offered furniture and interior furnishings for everyday use. The originals of these catalog reprints date from the heyday of tubular steel furniture production: the 1930s. They show the diversity of the range, with hundreds of models of chairs, tables and similar furniture used in households, schools, hospitals, stores and gardens. 5 catalogs, 184 pages

This book is a glorious introduction to the work of this brilliantly inventive 'constructeur". In explains his genius, Le Corbusier may have put it best when he observed that Prouvé combined 'the soul of an engineer with that of an archtiect'. Surely Prouvé's inspired use of forms and materials in the design of everthing from children's chairs to portable houses derived from these entwined passions. While many of his early commissions were for wealthy individuals and companies, it was not long before he branched out into mass manufacture, producing furnishings, even building parts for institutional clients.

Matisse and Decoration

Matisse and Decoration

Autor: John Klein

Número de Páginas: 273

A brand new look at the extremely beautiful, if underappreciated, later works of one of the most inventive artists of the 20th century Between 1935 and his death at midcentury, Henri Matisse (1869-1954) undertook many decorative projects and commissions. These include mural paintings, stained glass, ceramic tiles, lead crystal pieces, carpets, tapestries, fashion fabrics, and accessories--work that has received no significant treatment until now. By presenting a wealth of new insights and unpublished material, including from the artist's own correspondence, John Klein, an internationally acclaimed specialist in the art of Matisse, offers a richer and more balanced view of Matisse's ambitions and achievements in the often-neglected later phases of his career. Matisse designed many of these decorations in the innovative--and widely admired--medium of the paper cut-out, whose function and significance Klein reevaluates. Matisse and Decoration also opens a window onto the revival and promotion, following World War II, of traditional French decorative arts as part of France's renewed sense of cultural preeminence. For the first time, the idea of the decorative in Matisse's work and the ...

Hello World is Alice Rawsthorn's definitive guide to design and modern life Design is one of the most powerful forces in our lives. When deployed wisely, it can being us pleasure, choice, strength, decency and much more. But if its power is abused, the outcome can be wasteful, confusing, humiliating, even dangerous. None of us can avoid being affected by design, whether or not we wish to. It is so ubiquitous that it determines how we feel and what we do, often without our noticing. Hello World explores design's influence on our lives. Written by the renowned design critic Alice Rawsthorn and designed by the award-winning book designer Irma Boom, it describes how warlords, scientists, farmers, hackers, activists and designers have used design to different ends throughout history: from the macabre symbol invented by 18th century pirates to terrorise their victims into surrender, to one woman's quest for the best possible prosthetic legs and the evolution of the World Cup ball. At a time when we face colossal changes, unprecedented in their speed, scale and intensity - from the deepening environmental crisis, to giant leaps in science and technology - Hello World explains how design...

Arthur Rüegg's introductory essay brings to life in text and image those pioneering years. His precise and detailed commentaries inspire an appreciation and understanding of the richness of each drawing. A 16 page dossier of illustrations recreates the famous 1929 Salon d'Automne and the original furnishings of Villa Church. Arthur Rüegg, Professor for Architecture and Construction at the ETH in Zurich, is the leading expert on Le Corbusier's interior design, furniture and colour theory.

Ingrid Donat

Ingrid Donat

Autor: Anne Bony

* The first comprehensive monograph on Ingrid, one of the most sought after designers of the end of the 20th century * Donat creates exceptional pieces of sculpted furniture, in the great tradition of Giacometti Ingrid Donat creates sculpted furniture, most often in bronze. Taking a painterly approach to this weighty medium, Donat draws on diverse decorative influences. Art Deco, tribal tattooing, the work of Gustav Klimt and Armand-Albert Rateau have all inspired the intricate patterning of her work. Elements of Donat's practice remain consistent. Her creative process begins with a sheet of wax, which she inscribes, carves and shapes to form the "skin" of her work. This structure is then applied to her designs. She herself engraves the bronzes, paints the upholstery and treats the wood. Her pieces have been cast at the same bronze foundry, the Blanchet-Landowski, for over 20 years, as the stamp they bear goes to prove. Though often large and heavy, there is a delicacy to Donat's work. Almost like armor, she uses bronze to shield an idea of the fragile. In addition to her skilled craft, Donat is also an accomplished engineer. "Commode 7 Engrenages" incorporates a column of cogs...

Jean Prouvé

Jean Prouvé

Autor: Patricia De Muga , Sandra Dachs , Laura García Hintze

As a young man, Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) longed to become an engineer, but as his family could not afford the requisite training, at 15 he was apprenticed to a master blacksmith in Paris. Prouvé opened his own smithy in Nancy in 1923, and shortly thereafter produced his first furniture made from thin sheet steel. Right away, Prouvé's sparse, geometric aesthetic appealed to avant-garde architects such as Robert Mallet-Stevens and Le Corbusier, who commissioned ironwork from him, and in 1929, invited Prouvé to join the new Union des Artistes Modernes, a group of artists and designers championing the Modernist style. In the early 1940s, due to the scarcity of steel during World War II, Prouvé began working mostly with wood. Besides creating furniture, he also explored designs for pre-fabricated housing, constructing dwellings for the homeless. But by the 1960s, Prouvé's austere style seemed passé, and he fell foul of fashion's whims; as a self-taught designer he was also routinely excluded by the architectural establishment. His reputation may have further suffered from his own appetite for collaboration, which could make his exact role in architectural projects difficult to...

Furniture

Autor: Meinhard Von Gerkan , Von Gerkan, Marg Und Partner

Número de Páginas: 156

The German architectural studio of von Gerkan, Marg and Partner, or gmp, is renowned for large urban designs and projects such as Berlin's Tegal airport, fair grounds in Leipzig, and Stuttgart railway work. So it may come as a surprise that gmp also designs furniture. Yet many of the firm's projects have included interior furniture and design work. This generously illustrated book shows how gmp's aesthetics differ from their peers, and presents objects which are multifunctional, distinctive, deceptively simple, and enduring. As Meinhard von Gaerkan, the founder of the gmp firm has said, "Endurance requires that one should not get weary with the object, but become Fond of it, and be able to identify with it. And that means that it must have usefulness and radiate a sense of timelessness.... These are the same aims we seek in our architecture: creating with simple materials a high quality environment and developing a pleasing atmosphere."

Martine Bedin is an uncommon designer. Born in Bordeaux, graduate from the Ecole d'architecture in Paris, she spent time, at the end of the 1970s, with Adolfo Natalini and Ettore Sottsass from the radical architecture movement in Italy. In 1981, she teamed up with them to found Memphis in Milan - an influential movement of avant-garde ideas that would completely alter the domain of furniture design through its playful and colorful objects. Martine Bedin, now recognized on an international level, lives in Rome and pursues her exploration into forms and materials: from tropical hardwood to finely chiseled porcelain; from the Super lamp to the Grain de cafe handbag; from the Louis Bobine chest of drawers to the architecture of La maison rouge near Bordeaux. And thus continues this exceptional designer architect's questioning of space: "Our job is to think about things that do not exist." Book jacket.

"The first large-format monograph on the interiors and building projects of Marcel Wanders, one of the most original designers working today. Marcel Wanders's distinctive output combines a flair for the theatrical with a unique understanding of space that has vaulted him into the top ranks of contemporary design. His interiors projects range from iconic hotels like the Mondrian South Beach in Miami, to fairy-tale private residences in Amsterdam, Mallorca, and Jakarta. Developed integrally with his product design, his spaces incorporate a romantic, monumental sensibility that has redefined interior design. Starting with his work for the Morgans boutique hotel chain (The Rivington in New York) and the London flagship for Mandarina Duck, Wanders's work has spread to four continents. He also has recently partnered with Philippe Starck's and John Hitchcox's design-focused property development brand, yoo. The interiors developed by his Marcel Wanders Studio are drawn from a graphic tradition that combines the everyday with the ornamental, and these inspirational sources will be harnessed to create an unprecedented interior design volume."--Publisher's website.

The companies need to integrate delocalized units in different domains during the design process although it increases complexity in the design process due to the globalization. The actors must introduce their constraints in a just need and be able to work in a multi-actor system. We present here how the proposed system solves the problems of imaginary complexity .A design system for furniture made of particleboard or fiberboard is developed to validate our approach. It integrates a designer, proposing the outlines of shapes and principal dimensions of product corresponding to the specifications. A technologist, an assembler, a mechanician, and a manufacturer allow carrying out gradually the adequate technological choices, to calculate the dimensions of various elements by taking account of quality standards and to evaluate the cost of the final obtaining product.

The Furniture of Charles and Ray Eames

The Furniture of Charles and Ray Eames

Autor: Mathias Remmele

The oeuvre of the American designer couple Charles and Ray Eames is extraordinary in its range and diversity. Their groundbreaking furniture designs, which have remained current throughout the decades since their creation, play a central role in the Eames' oeuvre. As the sole authorized manufacturer of Eames designs in Europe and the Middle East for the past 50 years, Vitra is commemorating Charles Eames' 100th birthday with the publication of The Furniture of Charles & Ray Eames. Grouped into categories based on materials such as plywood, plastic, wire and aluminum, all of the Eames designs produced by Vitra are presented in detail. Reproductions of vintage photographs and documents accompany explanatory texts that provide in-depth information on the historical background and distinctive structural features of the furniture designs. Contemporary photographs illustrate the aesthetic quality of these objects. The active preservation of Charles and Ray Eames' legacy is the subject of a dialogue between Rolf Fehlbaum, the Chairman of Vitra, and Charles' grandson Eames Demetrios, the present director of the Eames Office.

This is the House that Jack Built

This is the House that Jack Built

Autor: Maja Hoffmann , Rirkrit Tiravanija

Tiré du site de l'éditeur: "This book offers an insight into the private contemporary art and design collection of Maja Hoffmann. As Hoffmann enters a new, increasingly public phase of philanthropy embodied by the construction of her Frank Gehry designed, non-profit LUMA Foundation Center in Arles, she is encouraged to share part of her collection to reveal that living with art and amongst artists is a dynamic and sincere experience, as well as a harbor for dreams. Here photographer François Halard and art director Beda Achermann have created a flow of images depicting very human environments, absent of people yet populated by their spirit. To complete the book, Rirkrit Tiravanija has chosen the British nursery rhyme This Is The House That Jack Built which is dispersed (in his custom-designed font) between the photos: slightly obsessive yet full of humor, the text removes any possible traces of vanity in the purpose of this publication and creates space for Hoffmann's vision of the world as an extended "house"-a place for storytelling, family, and an ongoing exchange with artists and thinkers".

I.M. Pei

Autor: Philip Jodidio , Janet Adams Strong

When I. M. Pei was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1983, the jury said he had "given this century some of its most beautiful interior spaces and exterior forms." I. M. Pei: Complete Works, the first and definitive survey of the master architect, attests to this statement by showcasing Pei’s transcendent, sculptural forms in over fifty projects and more than 300 illustrations, culminating in the last works he is currently completing. Often working in a spare geometry with a palette of stone, concrete, glass, and steel, Pei—who began his career pioneering public housing projects in New York City—has taken his vision of modern architecture across the globe with commissions in locations as diverse as Quatar, China, Luxembourg, Japan, and Germany. Meanwhile, major projects such as the JFK Library in Boston and the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., have made him a household name in the United States.
