Overview

* An interior design book which challenges and overthrows our preconceptions of how we should live.
* Offers new and exciting ways of flexible living

* Features over 800 extraordinary color photographs of interiors from around the world, with particular emphasis on Asia

* Drawing on a wide range of modern design from many countries, this unique, rich sourcebook takes an elemental approach to the design of a home. In an age when no interior design principle goes unchallenged and all ideas are possible, the only sensible approach is to start from the basic elements - how a home works and what we expect from it.
The Source, illustrated with hundreds of color photographs by Michael Freeman is divided into four sections which each cover a basic function. Connect deals with the connectivity of a home, from entrances and corridors to staircases. Divide shows the many ways in which individual areas can be divided and linked, from walls to screens and unconventional dividers. Space is concerned with living spaces in all their variety, balancing the twin needs of comfort and inspiration. Utility covers the basic functions of any dwelling, from cooking and bathing to working at home and storage.
