Item description for German Design for Modern Living: The Classics by Bernd Polster...

German design is famous the world over for its exceptional quality. The Bauhaus, established in Weimar in 1919, was probably the most influential school of design of the twentieth century, counting among its teachers and pupils such talents as Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Marianne Brandt. After the Second World War, the Hochschule fr Gestaltung in Ulm gained a reputation for setting new standards in Modernist interior and industrial design, and today a new generation of designers continues to offer an innovative approach to modern living. Illustrated with 1000 images,this encyclopedia is the most comprehensive guide available to the classics of German design, from Michael Thonet's bentwood chairs of the nineteenth century and Wilhelm Wagenfeld's famous Bauhaus table lamp to Dieter Rams's stereo equipment for Braun and Werner Aisslinger's modular furniture systems. Featuring detailed profiles of more than 150 classic products, it is an essential reference for students and anyone interested in modern design.
