FURNITURE BY ARCHITECTS
Published December 2013, this book
features an eclectic range of extraordinary and eye-catching
furniture designs by leading contemporary architects. Following the
tradition of great masters such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Le
Corbusier, these top architects and designers have extended their
talents to create beautiful and unusual furniture pieces and
collections for the rapidly growing and increasingly global market
for designer furniture.
The book explores why, historically, so
many iconic furniture pieces have been designed by architects.
Think of Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Chair and the now ubiquitous
Eames Lounge and Ottoman. Essentially, the same fundamental
principles used for designing extraordinary buildings can be
applied at a much smaller scale to create outstanding pieces of
furniture, which embrace form and function to become highly
collectable objects of art.
