Against the grain : Bentwood furniture from the collection of Fern and Manfred Steinfeld by Ghenete Zelleke( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wood can be bent into a vast range of configurations, making it a graceful and economical choice for furniture styles from the Biedermeier to the Bauhaus. This remarkably pliant material was also the stuff of broad transformations in aesthetics, design, manufacturing, and marketing. Furnishings by the Viennese companies Gebruder Thonet and Jacob & Josef Kohn tell the history of Modernism, from the Biedermeier era, Victorian eclecticism, the Secession and Art Nouveau to the 1930s International Style. Josef Hoffmann, Otto Wagner, and Adolf Loos were among the avant-garde architects who created designs in bentwood; Modernist visionaries like Le Corbusier celebrated early Thonet chairs for their purity of form. From the innovations of a German cabinetmaker to an international conglomerate with over ten thousand workers, the evolution of bentwood furniture encapsulates the industrial revolution itself." "Against the Grain: Bentwood Furniture from the Collection of Fern and Manfred Steinfeld documents The Art Institute of Chicago's exhibition of an important private collection, with essays by three notable scholars and a catalog section of seventy-five duotone reproductions. Art Institute curator Ghenete Zelleke outlines the stylistic transformations of bentwood furniture between the 1850s and the 1920s, discussing consumer taste in the development of furniture forms and the impact of historical shifts and aesthetic reform. Eva B. Ottillinger examines both the technical developments that led to industrialization and the marketing strategies that enabled mass consumption. Nina Stritzler discusses Thonet after 1922 as a leader in tubular-steel furniture by such architects as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and assesses the impact of industrial design and the corporate style on post-World War furniture." "Seventy-five excellent bentwood examples from the Steinfeld collection are illustrated in this catalog, with entries by Ghenete Zelleke. Against the Grain also includes a preface by the collector and an appendix with eighty black-and-white reproductions of other pieces of furniture in the collection."--BOOK JACKET

Küchen/Möbel : Design und Geschichte; [...erscheint zur Ausstellung "Küchen/Möbel. Design und Geschichte" im Hofmobiliendepot - Möbelmuseum Wien, 4. März - 26. Juli 2015] by Eva Ottillinger( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die moderne Einbauküche mit normierten Schrankelementen, Wasseranschluss und fix eingebauten Elektrogeräten ist erst im Laufe des 20. Jahrhunderts entstanden. Die Geschichte der Kücheneinrichtung reicht jedoch viel weiter zurück. Jahrtausende lang wurde am offenen Feuer gekocht und eine Küche versorgte das gesamte Hauswesen, sei es nun ein Bauernhof oder die Wiener Hofburg. Den Schwerpunkt des Buches bildet die Entstehung der kompakten Kücheneinrichtung für jede Wohnung. Die 1926 von der Wiener Architektin Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky entwickelte "Frankfurter Küche" ist das bekannteste Beispiel dafür. Aber erst nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg wurden Einbauküchen für breite Bevölkerungsschichten tatsächlich zur Selbstverständlichkeit. Ab den 1970er Jahren suchten Designer hingegen nach neuen Küchenkonzepten
