This book features a fascinating collection of some of the most innovative tables, chairs and lights ever designed; those that push the boundaries of imagination, art, and design.
This is a must for any designer interested in not only beautiful and often innovative design, but how such furniture is constructed.

Nice book Feb 6, 2007
Nice book, ain't got chance to finish it.,
But initial experience is really good..
Great Book Nov 23, 2005
There are tons of furniture books out there but this one is different from the norm. Not only does this book show images of the final product but it also has illustrations of how the furniture was built, the process of development and material call outs. This allows the reader to gain a much deeper understanding of the furnitures. I highly recommend this book.
