Product Description

Objects of Design from The Museum of Modern Art

Showcasing key works from The Museum of Modern Art's superlative architecture and design collection, Objects of Design features a wide variety of industrial and domestic artifacts by great designers of the modern period, from early masters such as Hector Guimard, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Josef Hoffmann to contemporary practitioners including Droog Design, Ettore Sottsass, Gaetano Pesce, Hella Jongerius, and others. The selection represents a full range of turn-of-the-century designs of the Vienna Secession, Art Nouveau, and the Arts and Crafts movement; masterpieces of the Bauhaus and the Dutch de Stijl movement; the rise of American design from the middle to late twentieth century; the Italian design revolution of the 1960s; and an international group of contemporary objects in familiar genres that use new materials and manufacturing methods. The volume’s authoritative texts include a preface by Terence Riley, the former Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum, and an introductory essay by Curator Paola Antonelli, which explores the history of modern design as well as the story of the Museum's collection and its influence on the history of modern and contemporary design itself. The book is divided into nine thematic sections, revealing the huge variety of aesthetic and conceptual viewpoints in design since the late nineteenth century, and illuminates the course of modern design, its major styles, and its individual masterpieces.
