Room 606: The SAS House and the Work of Arne Jacobsen
Michael Sheridan
0714842893
May 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In the center of Copenhagen, on the sixth floor of the Royal Hotel, a single room preserves in microcosm the definitive masterwork of Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. Room 606 is the last surviving interior of the SAS House - an unparalleled example of modern architecture and design. Best known beyond his Scan-dinavian homeland as a furniture designer, Jacobsen (1902-1971) was one of the outstanding architects of the twentieth century. Throughout his career, he created complete settings for daily life, dissolving the boundaries between architecture, interior, and indust-rial design. The SAS House represented the pinnacle of these efforts and, by the completion of the project in 1960, Jacobsen had designed every detail, including new furniture such as the now famous Egg and Swan chairs, fabrics, fixtures, and even the...

"…presents an informed view…an absolute must…occasionally you come across a book that does everything it claims – and then some. This is one…" (Blueprint, November 2002)

Book Description
Occasionally you come across a book that does everything it claims - and then some. This is one”         (Blueprint)

The Furniture Collection: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam: 1850-2000 From Michael Thonet to Marcel Wanders
Luca Dosi Delfini
9056621947
August 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The Stedelijk Museum opened its doors in 1895, the same year as the first Venice Biennale. It was a "quiet, civilized museum for the Amsterdam bourgeoisie in a time when there was nothing as troublesome as modern art." Initially, the museum exhibited the legacy of the eccentric Sophia Augusta de Bruyn, Douairière Lopez Suasso: a heterogeneous collection of antiques, coins, jewels, timepieces, silver knickknacks, and other curiosa. Period rooms, from canal houses that had been demolished when Raadhuisstraat was driven through, helped create a presentable whole. The museum's renowned furniture collection was not begun until 1934, but since then it has grown to include more than 1000 objects from circa 1850 to the present, with an accent on the twentieth century. Chairs, settees, tables, folding screens, cabinets,...

Less Is More: Minimalism in Architecture and Other Arts
Vittorio Savi
8495273659
March 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
From the furniture of Donald Judd to the cinema of Michelangelo Antonioni and Wim Wenders, from the music of John Cage to the buildings of Mies van der Rohe, Luis Barragan, and Arne Jacobsen, and on to the theater of Samuel Beckett and the fiction of Ernest Hemingway, "Less is More: Minimalism in Architecture and Other Arts" is dedicated to the phenomenon of Minimalism. Perhaps the most compelling multidisciplinary aesthetic of the past century, minimalism continues to resonate and still points towards the future for art, design, and culture. Quite a lot of the work that can be characterized as "minimalist" draws its effect from the dialectical interplay of two apparently contradictory forms--Minimalism and Maximalism--and the artists presented here testify to this tradition, drawing some unusual conclusions--but...


Miller's Collecting the 50's
Madeleinc Marsh
1840009365
March 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Often depicted as the era of bad taste, the 1950s usually evokes little more than poodle skirts and kidney-shaped tables in terms of style. However, as Marsh (also editor of the latest annual Miller's Collectibles Price Guide) points out, it was one of the most important periods in design history. It was the decade that brought high fashion to the masses, the clean look of Scandinavian design, and the expanded use of plastics and synthetic fibers. The results of these (and other) innovations are well illustrated in this book by photos of typical household items and appliances, clothing, costume accessories, toys, and games. References to popular design motifs and a time line of important events help to define attitudes and tastes of the time. Included are background information and current prices for the items....


The New Country Style: England
Chloe Grimshaw
0811854825
May 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The first in a new series that breathes freshness into interior and lifestyle books, The New Country Style England presents a wide array of rural retreats, seaside cottages, forest huts, and nature getaways. While the city home has undergone countless well-documented stylistic changes, there has been a quiet revolution going on in the countryside. The picture of pastoral perfection (think chintz) is being reinvigorated and modernized by the creativity of a new generation of owners, reflected in the stylish (and sometimes utterly unexpected) interiors of their homes. A converted neo-Gothic church is home to a contemporary furniture maker and his family, with Arne Jacobsen chairs in the dining room, Pucci upholstery in the chapel, and a trampoline for the children in the nave. In Gloucestershire, a dark wooden bed...
