Synopsis: British furniture designers have made a unique contribution to modern design. This book pinpoints the most inventive designers and companies from 1945 to the present—from postwar pioneers such as Ernest Race, Robin Day, and Robert Heritage, to iconoclastic figures such as Peter Murdoch, William Plunkett, and Max Clendinning, to today’s global superstars led by Tom Dixon, Ron Arad, and Jasper Morrison. This is a story of entrepreneurs—Lucian Ercolani at Ercol, Terence Conran at Habitat, and Rodney Kinsman at OMK, among others—and creative alliances, such as Frank Guille at Kandya.
Today, top British designers collaborate with international companies and foreign-born designers, such as El Ultimo Grito, to inject further variety into British furniture design.

About the Author: Lesley Jackson is an independent writer, curator, and design historian specializing in postwar design.

Book Description V A Publishing, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Focusing on design ingenuity, Modern British Furniture pinpoints the most inventive British designers and companies from 1945 to the present - from early postwar pioneers such as Ernest Race, Robin Day and Robert Heritage, to iconoclastic figures such as Peter Murdoch, William Plunkett and Max Clendinning, to today s global superstars led by Tom Dixon, Ron Arad and Jasper Morrison. Exploring the free-spirited and resourceful character of British design, this is a story of entrepreneurs who spearheaded their own companies - Lucian Ercolani at Ercol, Terence Conran at Habitat and Rodney Kinsman at OMK, among others - and the creative alliances between impassioned individuals and enlightened manufacturers, such as Frank Guille at Kandya. The book also looks at collaborations with international companies and foreignborn designers, such as El Ultimo Grito, who have adopted the UK as their base and injected further variety and spice into British furniture design.
