Description

As the definition of ‘designer’ expands and architects today create everything from jewelry to urban masterplans, a new wave of objects ranging from furniture to small-scale architectural inventions is transforming our interior spaces. Boosted by digital design and manufacturing possibilities, a rising global group of independent ‘makers’ is making this crossover of furniture and architecture one of the hottest and most innovative fields of design. Furnitecture presents some two hundred examples of this new design typology, by renowned architects and designers from around the globe, including Danish studio KiBiSi’s design for a reconfigurable bookshelf system, Japanese architect Shigeru Ban’s moving boxes within rooms, Dutch designers Makkink & Bey’s conversational Ear Chairs and French atelier 37.2’s series of self-standing cubes.

Features:

  • A compact sourcebook of ideas for innovative furnishing, interior environments and small-scale architectural interventions targeted at consumers and designers.
  • Essential reading for students and practitioners of furniture, design, interior design and architecture, and anyone with an interest in contemporary design and architecture.
  • Presents nearly two hundred examples, many of them affordable, that can turn ordinary domestic rooms into temples of high design.
  • A fresh approach to interior design that marries the most innovative forms of ‘micro-architecture’ with industrial design, and introduces a new international generation of creative talent.
  • Great-value publishing package that contains hard-to-find and collectible pieces, independent makers and quick solutions to spatial challenges.
