CAIRO BOOKS's Description
When did sofas become sexy? From the advent of aspirational design magazines
like Wallpaper* to the popularity of interior design shows on television, all
signs indicate that we are living in a boom time for furniture design. The
Furniture Machine is the first in-depth book-length examination of the major
trends and designers in contemporary furniture design over the last 15 years.
More than 170 illustrations and designs from cutting-edge designers, including
Philippe Starck, Ron Arad, and Marc Newson, illuminate the workings of the
furniture industry during this exciting period. Attention is also given to the
innovations of Italian manufacturers like Cappellini and B&B Italia, and to the
increasing influence of conceptual design, making this an ideal survey for home
enthusiasts as well as students of design.
