Industrial-style furniture is in fashion – bistro tables and chairs, lockers, mail sorting racks and jointed lamps are all common elements in today’s interior design. In this book, Brigitte Durieux, an authority on the style, tells us the story behind fifty European and American objects that have made it out of the factory and into our living rooms to become cult furniture.
Industrial Chic is a beautifully illustrated showcase that reveals the incredible reach, versatility and long-lasting appeal of industrial design. The remarkable histories of these distinguished objects – including the Gras lamp, the Navy chair, the Holophane reflector, the Brillié clock and more – accompany brilliant photographs by Laziz Hamani.
All collectors who actively buy and sell pieces, as well as design aficionados everywhere, will find this book compelling reading.
