Cult Furniture, Design and Lighting
Brigitte Durieux, Laziz Hamani
Thames & Hudson, London, 2012
Industrial-style furniture is in fashion – bistro tables and chairs, lockers, mail sorting racks and jointed lamps all feature in today’s interior design.
In this beautifully illustrated showcase Brigitte Durieux, an authority on the style, tells us the story behind fifty European and American objects that have made it out of the factory and into our living rooms to become cult furniture.
Industrial Chic reveals the reach, versatility and long-lasting appeal of industrial design. The remarkable histories of these distinguished objects – including the Gras lamp, the Navy chair, the Holophane reflector, the Brillié clock and more – accompany brilliant photographs by Laziz Hamani.
All collectors who actively buy and sell pieces, as well as design aficionados everywhere, will find this book compelling reading.
