Описание: Scandinavia has been the source of some of the most important furniture designs of the 20th century. This book offers the history of design in the Nordic nations, and illustrates more than 500 of the best furniture from over seventy producers, most of them in full colour.
Описание: During the second half of the twentieth century, Scandinavian potters and glassmakers drew on elements present in China and Japan during the period of the Sung Dynasty to produce pieces of beauty and elegance that combined subtle glazes and classical shapes. The qualities came to characterize Scandinavian design in combining the fundamentals of craftsmanship, quality, subtlety, and a relationship to the natural surroundings. With 380 color photographs to illustrate the work, this book is a must for the ceramics and glass collector as well as those who appreciate the results of a collaboration between artist and nature. Concentrating on designs produced in Sweden, Denmark, and Finland following World War II, the book presents the works of ceramics companies such as R?**rstrand, Gustavsberg, Arabia, Saxbo, and Palshus, as well as the glass of Orrefors, Kosta, and Iittala. Designs by some of the greatest names in contemporary Scandinavian ceramic and glass design, including Berndt Friberg, Stig Lindberg, Gunnar Nylund, Wilhelm K?**ge, Edward Hald, Sven Palmqvist, Tapio Wirkkala, Timo Sarpaneva, and Vicke Lindstrand, will be appreciated by all students of twentieth century design. The guide to current prices will please the collector.

Описание: The artists of the influential R rstrand porcelain factory in Sweden created some of the most beautiful decorative objects of the Art Nouveau style. In his fascinating and authoritative text, Bengt Nystr m focuses on the R rstrand factory's designers and their revolutionary forms during the period 1865 to 1915, when the firm successfully competed artistically with Tiffany and Gall in the great international expositions that showcased and helped to propagate the Art Nouveau style. Inspired by late 19th-century crafts movements fathered by William Morris, the artists of the R rstrand factory took nationalistic pride in incorporating their indigenous flora and fauna into their exquisite designs, transforming wintry berry springs and northern sea creatures into elegant three-dimensional works of art that appealed to a sophisticated European clientele. Illustrated with objects from Robert Schreiber's outstanding collection, supplemented with craftsmen's drawings and archival documents, Nystr m's thoroughly researched text includes engaging glimpses of the culture surrounding R rstrand (a former castle), especially the close-knit community of insightful administrators, talented designers and inventors, and artisans. The book chronicles not only the company's artistic achievements but the day-to-day personalities and decisions behind the emergence of this once-utilitarian factory as the birthplace of some of Sweden's most beautiful decorative objects.

Описание: Scandinavian landscape and garden design is original, sophisticated and poetic. Powerfully architectural, with an emphasis on geometry and sculpture, it is an evocative and romantic tradition.
The Scandinavian enthusiasm for outdoor living, making the most of the endless summer daylight hours, has meant that garden designers are particularly innovative in treating gardens as outdoor rooms or extensions of the house
Karl-Dietrich B?hler has an unrivalled knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, the gardens of Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. This book focuses on the best gardens of the region, both the small jewels produced by amateur gardeners and the gardens designed by world-famous landscape architects such as Carl Theodor S?rensen and Andreas Bruun. With the aid of full-colour photographs and plans, he describes elegant town gardens, and country, woodland and coastal gardens that are carefully designed into their landscapes.
