Design now : industry or art? by Volker Fischer( Book )

18 editions published in 1989 in English and German and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated volume covers the entire range of design today. In recent years design has developed greater variety than ever before: anything goes, seems to be the motto. This book shows that what at first sight appear to be little more than chaos is actually a handful of styles, each with a place in the kaleidoscope of modern design. Sobre functionalism coexists with colorful sculpture-objects of Alchimia and Memphis. Post-modern design with its historical references flourishes alongside futuristic High Tech. Trans High Tech uses High Tech materials as if they were archaeological artifacts. Minimalism and archetype design share a reductive aesthetic. The individual essays on these contemporary styles are preceded by a history of 20th-century industrial design using chair and lamp designs as examples. One essay focuses on the increasingly dominant role of architecture in design: micro-architecture can be found in tableware, where coffee pots resemble highrise buildings, for instance, and in furniture. Common objects are given a new cachet by presenting them as miniatures of formidable designs. The evolution of design is shaped by individual designers as much as by stylistic movements and this book includes chapters on the work of influential German designers Rams, Wewerka and Scheel. This richly illustrated survey demonstrates that the avant-garde does after all exist in industrial design today."--Jacket

Kengo Kuma : breathing architecture : the teahouse of the Museum of Applied Arts Frankfurt by Kengo Kuma( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and German and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kengo Kuma's Teahouse is a masterly reinterpretation of a classical Japanese building type. Delivered in August 2007 for the Park of the Frankfurt Museum of Applied Arts (a Richard Meier Building), Kuma's innovative structure in flexible, semi-transparent, 'breathing' Tenara-Membrane - inflated by means of a pneumatic system to a blossom-like form - houses in the interior the classical elements for Japanese tea ceremony. Integrated LED technology allows the use of the teahouse at night; the interior can be heated by way of the membrane. The monograph, including an original text by Kuma himself, gives an in-depth documentation of this lyrical temporary structure ? an outstanding example of ephemeral architecture, combining poetry and technology - with many unpublished sketches, technical plans and with splendid colour photographs
