Visionary furniture design from Vienna


In 1938, Vienna lost its best and most creative
minds. This rupture was manifested in all of the arts and sciences and
its mark is felt to this day - not least in the field of furniture
design.

With inexhaustible creativity the Jewish furniture
designers who were forced to flee Vienna continued to work while in
exile. They taught at the best universities and spread their ideas and
vision throughout the entire world. Their creations became classics of
twentieth-century furniture design, the epitome of mid-century modern
style.

This book honors the memory of the exiled designers with a
thorough overview of their work. It details their life stories and
their visionary designs, which remain as relevant and contemporary as
ever, and brings to light new aspects of the history of Viennese
furniture design.


  • A new history of Viennese furniture design, with 27 detailed biographies
  • Numerous previously unpublished photographs and sketches
  • Including works by F. Dicker-Brandeis, M. Eisler, J. Frank, F. Kiesler, R. Neutra, M. Sch tte-Lihotzky, E. Schwadron
