Item description for Patterns in Design, Art and Architecture by Petra Schmidt...

Is less really more? At long last, designers, artists, and architects have rediscovered the
evocative effect of patterns, and are paying homage to dcors once rejected as superfluous,
by covering lamps, chairs, or entire rooms with stripes, polka dots or camouflage designs.
Many -- such as the Rotterdam based designer Jurgen Bey -- are interpreting traditional
motives anew.

This book presents for the first time various multidisciplinary approaches
to patterns, showing the many functions dcors can fulfil. Using examples of contemporary
work by internationally renowned designers such as Tord Boontje, Michael Lin, Olaf Nicolai and Sauerbruch & Hutton, the diversity of colours, shapes and applications are laid out before the reader, illustrating the impact and influence of technical innovations such as laser engraving and digital milling on patterns and our perception of them.

Reviews - What do customers think about Patterns in Design, Art and Architecture?

Beautiful but Schizophrenic  Oct 14, 2007
I bought it to be stimulated with erotic patterns like the ones you see on the cover and a few pictures shown here, and I got more than what I asked for. I get dizzy going through this book. I think it would ease my confusion if the book were organized in the order other than the names of artists/designers/architects. As for the ornaments in architecture, it seems to be short of rigor to read it as a continuation on the line of discussion. However, being introduced to artists/designers I did not know about was something I needed, and the captions in the back of the book are quite good. I would recommend it if you were interested in it as a reference catalogue for these reasons.
