Overview

The world's most singular, severely elegant collection of contemporary furniture has been created by Nicos Zographos. He has produced hundreds of striking designs for thousands of spaces in America and Europe. Many great architects like Philip Johnson, Gordon Bunshaft, Walter Gropius, and I. M. Pei have used his work to complement their buildings. This volume, featuring color photographs of his interior design projects as well as dramatic duotone images of his furniture, gathers and critically assesses his work for the first time.

Zographos is the last adherent to the strict aesthetic principles first defined by the European Bauhaus school, and he is very likely one of the last designers to manage his own manufacturing company. Within a business bounded by commercial constraints, his enduring values have significantly influenced both the style and the standards of the modern furniture industry.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Sleek, functional, and timeless yet inherently contemporary" describes the furniture and interiors highlighted in this simple, elegant book about minimalist designer Nicos Zographos. He was influenced by Mies and the Bauhaus and employed for several years by Skidmore, Owens & Merrill. His furniture, easily recognized by its bold, rounded edges and clean, sleek lines, is found in both corporate offices and homes around the world. Based on interviews with the designer, his friends, and his associates, the text tells an extremely personal story of the designer's life from Greece to Iowa to New York. The first part focuses on Zographos's history, education, and work, while the last part centers on his architecture, interiors, and collections through a series of photographic essays. The book is exquisitely illustrated with drawings and photographs of these famed works. This book will be a welcome addition to collections focusing on design and decorative arts.--Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ.
