VINTAGE INDUSTRIAL: LIVING WITH MACHINE AGE DESIGN. Misha de Potestad and Patrice Pascal. Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 2014. 224 pp. with 225 ills. (213 col.). 26 x 21 cm. LC 2014-936626 ISBN 9780847842322 In English.
Publisher's description: An exquisitely illustrated celebration of this influential style that is now at the forefront of interior design. Vintage Industrial covers the period from 1900 to 1950, which produced the raw, functional aesthetic that has become a cornerstone of modern design. The advent of the second industrial revolution created the need for a new kind of furniture to satisfy the demands of a rapidly growing workforce. Chairs, tables, lamps, and modular storage were designed from new materials to be mass-produced, stackable, and adjustable to the developing needs of brand-new industries that in turn were manufacturing the products that would define a changing society. These pieces, that inform a reclaimed style, are now highly popular among collectors and interior designers. This volume celebrates the engineers who shaped the industrial aesthetic as the unsung heroes of modern design and showcases their creations. By discovering ways to work iron and steel into functional forms, luminaries such as Bernard-Albin Gras, George Carwardine, Jean Prouve, and Edouard-Wilfred Buquet sparked a revolution in the way we think about our built environment.
