Item description for Bamboo Style: Exteriors, Interiors, Details (Icons) by Angelika Taschen & Reto Guntli...

The many uses of beautiful bamboo Besides feeding pandas and making a yummy addition to many Asian dishes, bamboo is also used as a building material, both functional and decorative. The dried stems are extremely sturdy and lend themselves to a multitude of uses. Shigeru Ban, for example, found a way to create lumber from laminated woven bamboo for a house he designed in Beijing. Other houses show off bamboo in more straightforward ways, lining the ceilings or floors with stems, or even forming walls. Bamboo is also used to construct furniture, lending a chair or a bed a warm, earthy feeling. This unique look book captures the many uses of bamboo in houses throughout China, Japan, and Indonesia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bamboo Style: Exteriors, Interiors, Details (Icons)?

Creative Uses of Bamboo  Jul 21, 2008
. . .photographed very well. This is a 'picture book' meant to stimulate the imagination in finding ways to use bamboo creatively. If you have one, and just enjoy great photography and a homage to the beauty of bamboo, this is the book for you!
Great pictures, no text  May 18, 2008
For anyone interested in design who wants to see examples of what others have done, this is a great book - lots of excellent pictures. For someone who wants lots of explanation of what they are looking at, it is a disaster as there is virtually zero text (whole book has maybe 1 page, pictures have no titles or descriptions of any sort, no idea of location, anything. So for the artist, designer who has a need for visual stimulation (like going to an art gallery), it is great.
Bamboo Design Inspiration  Jul 25, 2007
I was given this book as gift by Joerg Stamm a famous bamboo builder. It is one of the most popular books in our library in our sales and design office. Shot mostly in Bali area (I think) it is a great photo essay of design possibilities using bamboo materials. Since it is what we do for a living we are always looking for ideas to help us create new tropical sanctuaries for our customers. I recommend it highly for design ideas, and a fine coffee table book filled with delicious images sure to inspire.
