Century of forms
Design from Art Nouveau to Minimalism... and everything in between
Arriving more or less safely in the 21st century, we finally see clearly: The 20th century was firmly in the hands of the designers. Aesthetics took possession of everyday life and transformed our homes and offices into galleries of ever-changing style fads, in which progress showed its frivolous side.
TASCHEN brings together the entire design spectrum here – from furniture to graphic design, from the organic to the geometric, from art deco to pop to high-tech. All the designers who put the finishing touches on civilization and helped create our modern world are represented – from Marcel Breuer to Dieter Rams, from Gerrit Rietveld to Arne Jacobsen and Harry Bertoia to Philippe Starck, to name just a few.
This AZ of designers and styles conveys a comprehensive cross-section of the creativity of the 20th century in a way that is as competent as it is opulent.
Charlotte & Peter Fiell are renowned design authors who have written over 60 books on the subject. Her various specialties include transportation design in all its many forms.
