Publisher's description: Best known for his light-flooded houses, Austrian-American architect Richard J. Neutra (1892-1970) shaped the scene of California Modernism. From there he rose to become one of the most influential names in the history of modern architecture, but in contrast to his peers--like the great Aalto, Breuer, Jacobsen and Prouve--Neutra's work on furniture designs has long been undiscovered. Modern building historian and Neutra specialist Barbara Lamprecht fills this gap with Richard Neutra: Furniture. Referring to the original sketches and patent drawings, Lamprecht focuses on the details of the furniture designs, relating this element of the architect's work to his overarching desire to create balanced environments for his clients, each element--furniture, lighting, nature and landscape, and building--working together to create a "soul anchorage," as Neutra put it. This bilingual monograph is a must-have for those interested in modernist design and a crucial addition to existing scholarship.
