Publisher's description:
"Danish furniture design burst onto the international scene in the late '20s and soon came to be revered as classic. Danish Chairs is the only book available to survey the innovative, prolific output of Denmark's design elite during the years when they turned again and again to the chair. Architects and designers are notorious chair aficionados; some would say they are obsessed with chairs. With over 150 examples of fine Danish chair design by 66 premier designers, Danish Chairs is the perfect book for devotees. Each style is shown from multiple angles, accompanied by technical details and notes about the designer, as well as schematic line drawings for more than 25 chairs. With landmark works by Kaare Klint (the Peacock chair), Arne Jacobsen (the Ant chair), Finn Juhl, and Hans J. Wegner, Danish Chairs is a unique reference and source of creative inspiration for all who admire the chair.

Noritsugu Oda is a professor in the arts and crafts department of Hokkaido University in Japan. Formerly an illustrator, he has won 26 awards in the field of advertising.    [Book ID # 1790]
