Postmodern Design Complete

Серия: "-"

Originating as a rebellious movement in philosophy and literature, Postmodernism proclaimed the death of modernism and promoted a new, nonlinear way of approaching architecture and design, spearheaded by Michael Graves, Robert Venturi, Ettore Sottsass, and Alessandro Mendini. It became a style in itself and the defining look of the 1980s. Postmodern Design Complete is the comprehensive reference to this period of vibrant design, as it profiles key creators including Graves, Mendini, Sottsass, Venturi, Charles Jencks, and Denise Scott Brown and covers the fields of architecture, furniture, graphic design, textiles, and product and industrial design. A section on Living with Postmodernism presents fifteen seminal homes and their furnishings; and a final section titled Postmodernism Continues is a comprehensive overview of contemporary makers. Highly informed and accessible texts are illustrated by more than 1, 000 images that bring together classics and little-seen rarities, unusual objets d'art, and mass-produced items. This definitive volume also includes a foreword by Charles Jencks and an afterword by Denise Scott Brown, followed by a substantial reference section.
