Modernismo Arredi, design e grafica 1920 -1950

Caption

Since the end of WWI technological progress, coupled with an innovative approach and aesthetic, has revolutionised lifestyles and living spaces, changing the way we look at the objects with which we surround ourselves in our everyday lives.

Containing more than 600 illustrations, this large repertoire offers a comprehensive panorama of all aspects of Modernist design, divided into sections on furniture, lighting, ceramics and glass, industrial and product design, graphic design and posters, and some of the houses designed and furnished by architects who saw architecture and interiors as one. Alvar Aalto, Marcel Breuer, Eileen Gray, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe plus Paolo Venini, Ferdinand Porsche, Josef Albers and A.M. Cassandre are but some of the key figures of the incredibly productive and creative period that marked the 1920′-50s, giving rise to what we can today call “the Modernist adventure”.

Accompanied by texts written by experts in the various spheres and completed with an illustrated biographical index of the leading designers, architects and manufacturers, this is an essential reference book for designers, collectors and enthusiasts alike.
