A Century of Austrian Design: 1900-2005
Birkhauser Verlag, 2006. First Edition, Softcover. Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. 9783764373306 An excellent copy, clean bright and unmarked, appears to be unread. Offers a highly accessible overview of Austrian design culture from 1900 to 2005 against the background of the country's extremely turbulent industrial history. In the process, the key aspects are explained in essays by celebrated experts. The book attempts to delineate a specifically "Austrian" formal language, citing as examples specific achievements in historical and contemporary design. As it does so, it also sheds light on other defining moments of Austria's design culture, including the enormous potential of its inventors, the phenomenon of semi-industrial manufacturing, and the innovative design solutions advanced by the Austrian sporting goods industry. A yellow pages section with selected design addresses rounds off the volume. Profusely illustrated in colour. 255 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 750 grams. Category: Art & Design; ISBN/EAN: 9783764373306. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: dscf5821.
