DANISH MODERN: BETWEEN ART AND DESIGN. Mark Mussari. Bloomsbury Academic, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 2016. 206 pp. with 31 ills. 25 x 16 cm. LC 2015-35977 ISBN 9781474223706 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 170126. Publisher's description: Danish Modern explores the development of mid-century modernist design in Denmark from historical, analytical and theoretical perspectives. Mark Mussari explores the relationship between Danish design aesthetics and the theoretical and cultural impact of Modernism, particularly between 1930 and 1960. He considers how Danish designers responded to early Modernist currents: the Stockholm Exhibition of 1930, their rejection of Bauhaus aesthetic demands, their early fealty to wood and materials, and the tension between cabinetmaker craft and industrial production as it challenged and altered their aesthetic approach. Tracing the theoretical foundations for these developments, Mussari discusses the writings and works of such figures as Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, Nanna Ditzel, and Finn Juhl.
