Modern Design from Germany: All in One Book
Tubular steel armchair, glass lamps, Bauhaus wallpapers: In addition to the famous classics of the Weimar School of design, which determine the world’s style of living until today, Germany has produced other pioneering concepts: from the bow wooden chairs of Michael Thonet in the 19th century and early system cabinets up to the current designs of young designers who now reinvent our furnishing style.
For the first time, this book presents an detailed overview about the constant creativity in Germany. More than 150 German living classics are described in detailed product portraits from furniture to lamps, wallpaper, and carpets to pianos, fireplaces, door handles, and dinnerware. Thus, the book is not only a unique reference book, but also the source of inspiration for modern interior design ideas.
