From the advent of aspirational design magazines like Wallpaper to the
popularity of interior design shows on television, all signs indicate that we
are living in a boom time for furniture design. The Furniture Machine is the
first in-depth book-length examination of the major trends and designers in
contemporary furniture design over the last 15 years.
More than 170 illustrations and designs from cutting-edge designers,
including Philippe Starck, Ron Arad, and Marc Newson, illuminate the workings of
the furniture industry during this exciting period. Attention is also given to
the innovations of Italian manufacturers like Cappellini and B&B Italia, and to
the increasing influence of conceptual design, making this an ideal survey for
home enthusiasts as well as students of design.
