Описание: What is it that distinguishes a chair designed by an architect? Why is it so tempting for an architect to have a chair in his or her portfolio? Is it possible to use creative solutions interchangeably in both domains? Chairs by Architects answers these and many other questions to show how qualities in the buildings by architects are also evident in their chair design: pieces of furniture, like manifestos, become signatures of architectural style. The 55 architects include early modern architectural pioneers such as Otto Wagner, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Antoni Gaudi and Walter Gropius, together with more recent modern masters such as Oscar Niemeyer, Santiago Calatrava, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry and Daniel Libeskind. The book contains interviews on Designing (in conversation with David Adjaye), Manufacturing (with David E. Bright, Knoll Inc.), Selling (with Zeev Aram), Collecting (with Richard Wright) and Preserving (with Susanne Graner, Vitra Design Museum).
This is essential reading for everyone concerned with design, architecture and the relationship between creators and their creations.

Описание: 100 British Chairs depicts a selection of chairs that date from several important periods in the history of British chair design. Presented in a roughly chronological sequence, the emphasis is on early (pre-1745) and late (post-1840) periods.
The presentation is also thematic, and this more accurately represents the purpose of the book, which is to illustrate some of the key developments in British chair design in the chosen periods. Design and development before 1740 were largely the work of artists and craftsmen whose names have been lost, so the chairs are mostly unattributed and arranged by type and period. The later chairs are arranged differently, highlighting the work of well-known designers of the Gothic Revival, Arts and Crafts, and other progressive British design schools.

Описание: The Windsor Chair, whether simple or complicated in construction, plain or ornate in appearance, has always served its purpose - to be utilitarian, durable, comfortable and even handsome. Many excellent academic works have been written on the subject, but this book does not attempt to improve on their expertise. The intention rather is to complement them by showing the finest designs in greater detail. The form and construction of the chairs speak for themselves. All the chairs illustrated, although made in different centuries, are in use today. More than 150 colour plates illustrate the very best Windsor chairs from the earliest stick-backs - literally stools with a few sticks added to the back - of the 18th century to those mass-produced for offices, schools, public institutions and the armed forces in the 19th century. There is a special section on American Windsors and an epilogue outlines the story of the Windsor chair through the 20th century and concludes by illustrating a 2002 Golden Jubilee chair. The book acts as a celebration of the beautiful Windsor chair.
