Overview

When did sofas become sexy? 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.
