description

"Architektur im Möbel - Furniture as Architektur' is the title of this richly illustrated book which traces the parallels between building and furniture design from antiquity to today. It records a dialogue between past and present in whcih the examples are selected in particular to relate the achievements of the twentieth century to those of our forbears. The text and illustrations are both by the author and highlight an 'objective' architecture and its inherent laws as expressed in the design of buildings and furniture." -- from back wrapper.
