ARBOR VITAE/MUSEUM OF DECORATIVE ARTS IN PRAGUE

The History of Modern Furniture Design

Text by Daniela Karasová.

Featured image, of Marc Held's "Screen" (1970), produced by Créateurs et
industriels, France, is reproduced from <I>The History of Modern Furniture Design</I>.This abundantly illustrated monograph tells the story of modern furniture in Czechoslovakia and the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands, from the first half of the nineteenth century (the Biedermeier period) to the late twentieth century. The book offers a comprehensive overview of the modern history of furniture in this region against the backdrop of significant developments in the field worldwide. Particular attention is devoted to the most distinguished artists–designers, as well as to the stories of furniture manufacturers and institutions. The volume examines the history of furniture manufacturing, sources of inspiration and types of material as well as technological aspects. Profiles of eminent Czech and international furniture designers form an important part of the publication: Jir?i Bárta, Leopold Bauer, Jaroslav Benda, Frantisek Bilek, Josef Fanta, Marian Farka, Jaroslav Grunt, Radek Hegmon, Jaroslav Kadlec, Jerry Koza, Josef Macek, Karel Mrkva, Rudolf Netik, Peter Opsvik, Otto Rothmayer, Pavel Rychlink, Karel Teige and many others.
