Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Arts and Crafts and Aesthetic Movements, Art Nouveau, the Modern Movement, its rivals Art Deco and the Moderne, American Streamlining and Modern, Pop, Op, Surrealism, Hi-Tech, Post-Modernism, Deconstructivism, and many other styles of interior design are charted in this wide-ranging survey. Some movements, like the Modern, were inspired by leading architects such as Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright, or by groups and schools such as the Bauhaus. Others like Art Deco were the work of decorators such as Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann — glamorous haut-decor, which was then popularized throughout the world by the mass media. Still others, like the ethnic styles, were virtually anonymous, or were consumer-led.<P>Anne Massey introduces all the styles, signposts the changes of direction, and fully documents the emergence of professional "interior decoration" and its evolution into interior design. This revised edition is brought up to date with discussions of green design and the effect of new technology on the home and workplace.

Synopsis:

A revised, updated survey of 20th-century interior design from the Arts and Crafts Movement to the present day, including discussions on Art Nouveau, Bauhaus, the Modern Movement, Art Deco, Hi-Tech and Green. All types of interiors are explored and set within their economic and cultural contexts.

Synopsis:

"[Covers] a range of important issues for the history of interior design in the 20th century."—Journal of Design History

From the nineteenth-century Arts and Crafts movement to the present day—from Art Nouveau, Bauhaus, the Modern Movement, and Art Deco to High-Tech and green design—every style of interior design since 1900 is charted in this wide-ranging survey. Design in the twentieth century saw many changes in direction, including the emergence of professional "interior decoration" and its evolution into interior design. Interiors, domestic and other, are explored and placed within their social, political, economic, and cultural context.

This revised and expanded edition is brought into the twenty-first century with a new chapter on sustainable design that focuses on public spaces such as hotels, offices, factories, and shops. 217 illustrations, 59 in color.
