Sourcebook of Modern Furniture

By Jerryll Habegger and Joseph H. Osman W. W. Norton $89.95 Like the two previous editions, the latest <i>Sourcebook of Modern Furniture</i> by Jerryll Habegger and Joseph H. Osman is filled with all facets of technologically innovative furniture from Gebrüder Thonet to Zaha Hadid. But this third edition offers the splendid and lively allure of color images. As the saying goes, third time’s a charm. Each of the 2,000 images is categorized by furniture type, year (in chronological order), model name or number, designer(s), manufacturer, materials and dimensions. With little text and relatively no historical information, this book is a great quick source for design professionals, furniture buyers and consumers looking for their favorite innovative and modern pieces to complete their home or office décor.

Carlo Mollino was one of the most inspired architects and designers of the 20th century, but never the subject of a solo monograph. Until now. The Furniture of Carlo Mollino features 400 sketches, drawings and photographs, many never before published. In the first of three sections, the authors examine influences on Mollino’s work: For example, he sidelined in aeronautics, automobile design, photography, set design and women’s fashion. Next, 150 glossy pages of lightly captioned images speak for themselves. A reference guide concludes with an extensive chronology of his interiors and furniture, as well as a bibliography for further exploration. Not for the lighthearted, this compre-hensive book is reserved for readers with a serious interest in the history of design and the making of a legend.
