Abstract:

"The richly illustrated monograph tells the story of modern furniture produced from the first half of the 19th century - the Biedermeier period - to the late 20th century. The book offers a comprehensive overview of the modern history of furniture in the Czech lands against the backdrop of significant developments in furniture making worldwide, including one-of-a-kind designer furniture. Particular attention is devoted to the most distinguished artists-designers, as well as the fates of furniture manufacturers and institutions. The volume examines the art-historical aspects of furniture manufacturing, sources of stylistic inspiration, the types of materials used, as well as technological aspects. Profiles of eminent Czech and international furniture designers form an important part of the publication.
