Abstract:

"Josef and Anni Albers: Designs for Living is the first book to examine the Alberses' little-known but pioneering creations for the home. During their time at the renowned Bauhaus school in the 1920s and early 1930s, and throughout their distinguished careers in America, the Alberses produced an astonishing array of innovative furniture, textiles, and household objects. From colorful glass-topped tables, fruit bowls, and album covers to abstract wall hangings, greetings cards, and jewelry made from such ordinary materials as paperclips and sink strainers, this book covers their most inventive domestic objects, some of which have never previously been published. These works bear witness to the Alberses' endless creativity and, above all, to their conviction that everyday life can be enhanced and enriched through design."--Jacket.
