"The post World War II years have been among the richest and most complex in the history of the decorative arts. Design revolutions have taken places in all fields from furniture to ceramics, from photography to jewellery. Social, technological and economic changes, as well as developing aesthetic considerations, have all played their part in shaping the applied arts of the era. The introduction of cheap reproduction processes has brought 'good' design within the reach of a wide public. At the same time, the exlusive interior designer has remained a powerful figure, producing expensive and finely-made artifacts for a wealthy clientele. The influence of the great classics of the Modern Movement--the furniture and objects created by Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier--has grown, but other tendencies--some self-consciously decorative--have also helped to shape contemporary design: Pop Art and Pop culture, nostalgia and revivalism."    [Book ID # 1437]
