Synopsis:

* An interior design book which challenges and overthrows our preconceptions of how we should live.
* Offers new and exciting ways of flexible living

* Features over 800 extraordinary color photographs of interiors from around the world, with particular emphasis on Asia

* Drawing on a wide range of modern design from many countries, this unique, rich sourcebook takes an elemental approach to the design of a home. In an age when no interior design principle goes unchallenged and all ideas are possible, the only sensible approach is to start from the basic elements - how a home works and what we expect from it.
The Source, illustrated with hundreds of color photographs by Michael Freeman is divided into four sections which each cover a basic function. Connect deals with the connectivity of a home, from entrances and corridors to staircases. Divide shows the many ways in which individual areas can be divided and linked, from walls to screens and unconventional dividers. Space is concerned with living spaces in all their variety, balancing the twin needs of comfort and inspiration. Utility covers the basic functions of any dwelling, from cooking and bathing to working at home and storage.

Book Description Eight Books. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Source: Inspirational Ideas for the Home, Michael Freeman, Interior design has undergone a quiet but profound revolution in the last decade, as home-owners have become more aware of international influences and more prepared to experiment, to break out of the prescribed moulds of style. Many different parts of the world in particular India, China, and Japan have evolved their own unique styles of modernism, much of it rooted in the traditional principles of their particular regions, and this has helped to liberate the way we now think about dwelling space, its organisation and furnishing. Drawing on a wide range of modern design from many countries, this unique, rich sourcebook takes an elemental approach to the design of a home. In an age when no interior design principle goes unchallenged and all ideas are possible, the only sensible approach is to start from the basic elements how a home works and what we expect from it. The Source, illustrated with hundreds of colour photographs by Michael Freeman, one of the most widely travelled authors and photographers working in this area, is divided into four sections which each cover a basic function. The first, Connect, deals with the connectivity of a home, from entrances and corridors to staircases. The second, Divide, shows the many ways in which individual areas can be divided and linked, from walls to screens and unconventional dividers, as well as flexible partitions that draw on Japanese and Chinese principles. The third section, Space, is concerned with living spaces in all their variety, balancing the twin needs of comfort and inspiration. The last section, Utility, covers the basic functions of any dwelling, from cooking and bathing to working at home and storage. All of this is illustrated by a vast array of ideas and solutions from many of the worlds best interior designers and architects. This new book offers a different and refreshing way of looking at the house and the elemental way of how we live today. Bookseller Inventory # B9780955432248
