The 1950's house was a scientific triumph, designed in a laboratory and tested on inhabitants of all ages before being built for the masses. Never had homes been so thoroughly contemporary, with antiques and period styles entirely banished. Mid-Century Modern explores the interior decor of this seminal decade, concentrating on all aspects of a home's decoration-walls, flooring, surfaces, lighting, and, of course, furniture. Case studies examine beautiful present-day homes that exhibit mid-century style in an exemplary way, and suggest ideas for taking the 1950's look-complete with collector's pieces-and mixing and matching it with elements from other eras.

Ideal homes, 1918-39

This book explores the aspirations and tastes of new suburban communities in interwar England for domestic architecture and design that was both modern and nostalgic in a period where homeownership became the norm. It investigates the ways in which new suburban class and gender identities were forged through the architecture, design and decoration of the home through choices such as ebony elephants placed on mantelpieces and modern Easiwork dressers in kitchens. It argues that a specifically suburban modernism emerged, which looked backwards to the past whilst looking forward to the future. Thus the inter-war 'ideal' home was both a retreat from the outside world and a site of change and experimentation. It also examines how the interwar home is lived in today. The book will appeal to academics and students in design, social and cultural history as well as a wider readership curious about interwar homes.

The post-war consumer boom of the 1950s, coupled with a desire for new, innovative design resulted in one of the most exciting decades in the history of interiors - a visual revolution that was captured on the pages of British House & Garden. In Fifties House, mid-century modern enthusiast Catriona Gray has drawn on the magazine's peerless archive, curating the best illustrations and photographs to show how the use of colour, pattern, homewares and furniture evolved through the decade. The homes of key tastemakers are featured including Le Corbusier, Giò Ponti, Terence Conran and Hans and Florence Knoll. The first title in the new Decades of Design series, House & Garden Fifties House is required reading for mid-century modern enthusiasts, collectors and decorators in search of inspiration from the most influential homes of the past.

Das dynamische Designer-Duo Die illustre Karriere von Charles und Ray Eames "Irgendwann ist alles mit allem verbunden - Menschen, Ideen, Dinge etc. ... die Qualität der Verbindungen ist der Schlüssel zur Qualität insgesamt." - Charles Eames "... alles hängt an irgendetwas anderem." - Ray Eames Nichts drückt die Vollkommenheit der Moderne besser aus als ein Eames-Design. Das Ehepaar Eames ist dem breiten Publikum vor allem durch seine Möbelklassiker bekannt. Charles (1907-1978) und Ray Eames (1912-1988) waren aber auch wegweisend in den Bereichen Architektur, Industriedesign, Fotografie und Film. Dieses Buch deckt alle Aspekte ihres Schaffens ab, von den frühesten Experimenten mit geformtem Schichtholz über die "Case Study Houses" und ihre Zusammenarbeit mit dem Möbelhersteller Herman Miller bis hin zu Experimentalfilmen wie dem bahnbrechenden Kurzfilm Powers of Ten (1977).

Entwurfsidee entwickelt Möglichkeiten, wie Studenten sich einer entwurflichen Lösung nähern können. Neben grundsätzlichen Anregungen zu kreativen Prozessen und der Entwicklung eines Entwurfsansatzes werden verschiedene Inspirationsquellen für eine Entwurfsidee aufgezeigt. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt auf den drei Elementen Ort, Form und Funktion, die einerseits direkte Ausgangspunkte für den Entwurf bieten können, andererseits bei allen abstrakten Ansätzen in den fortschreitenden Entwurfsprozess einbezogen werden müssen. Themen: Kreativität im Entwurfsprozess Inspirationsquellen und Entwurfsansätze Beschäftigung mit dem Ort Beschäftigung mit der Form Beschäftigung mit der Funktion
