FURNITURE & INTERIORS OF THE 1960s
Editions Flammarion, 2003
Contents: The Plastic Years – Rationalism : The Industrial Context of Production. A New International Modernism – The Anti-Object : The Poetry of Forms. The 1960s was a decade of exuberance, experimentation, and excess, a time when radical furniture design ‘popped’ as brightly as the new art, and traditional designs were recast with new materials. In this era of uncertainty and radical change, utopian ideals fueled new directions in furnishings and accessories that appeared in cutting-edge homes and offices around the world. This book pays homage to the vibrancy and buoyant energy of design trends from this bold decade of twentieth-century design, where everything seemed possible, a style that never went out of fashion. Hardcover, pp 223, with many color illustrations. English text.
