Abstract:

Past, present, and future color trends in corporte office design are reviewed in this cultural retrospective of its kind. Both a pictorial history and a sourcebook for achieving or studying retro styles, Color in the Office provides a visual and editorial timeline of how architects and interior designers have used color decoratively in American offices since 1950. All important color styles are analyzed and placed in historical perspective. Color photographs featured display an exemplary collection of international, traditional, postmodern, and neoclassical office designs. Readers will gain insights into how two generations of developments in furniture, textiles, and technology have impacted office design. The roles played by such influential architects and designers as Wright, "Shu" Knoll, Girard, Graves, and Sottsass in color evolution and innovation are made evident throughout. Architectural styles, relevant design technologies, furniture styles, and textile designs for each decade are examined for their influence on office color application. Key areas discussed include office landscape, environmental design, materiality in design, color research, and changing patterns of work. The author places the evolution of color and design in the context of their cultural, social, and economic influences, and concludes with a detailed and insightful glimpse of the office of the future. Brief reviews of political and social events of different aras orient readers to the time periods being discussed. Since color is one of the client's foremost concerns, Color in the Office will be especially useful to designers who are seeking to inform or enlighten. It will meet the reference needs of project managers, interior designers, textile designers, and furniture designers, as well as students pursuing careers in these fields.
