Modernist Design Complete

By Dominic Bradbury

The powerful aesthetic and philosophical framework that Modernism ushered in during the early part of the 20th century revolutionized the built world, transformed our living spaces and lifestyles, and fundamentally changed the way we think about design. As they experimented with new forms, materials and techniques, Modernist designers rejected historical precedents to prioritize function over history and tradition. This comprehensive volume brings together all facets and scales of Modernist design, presenting the vast breadth of both towering and lesser-known figures, and revealing unexpected connections and new insights. With sections on furniture, lighting, glass, ceramics, textiles, industrial and product design, graphic design and posters, architecture and interiors, and featuring profiles of nearly a hundred influential creators, including such iconic figures as Bruno Mathsson, Charlotte Perriand and László Moholy-Nagy, as well as architects Alvar Aalto, Le Corbusier, Eliel Saarinen and Walter Gropius, the book’s scope is unprecedented.

Complete with specially commissioned essays by established academics and subject specialists, and with over 600 illustrations, the majority in colour, Modernist Design Complete is set to become the definitive reference for a generation, indispensible for the designer’s studio, the library shelves or the collector’s desk.
