Charlotte Perriand, L’aventure japonaise

Ce livre retrace l’aventure exceptionnelle d’une femme, architecte, pionnière de la modernité, proche de Le Corbusier, Fernand Léger et Juan Miró, qui au milieu du XXe siècle a su établir un trait d’union encore vivace, aujourd’hui entre l’Europe et le Japon. De Charlotte Perriand, Sôri Yanagi pensait: “De tous les occidentaux qui ont travaillé au Japon, c’est probablement elle qui a eu la plus grande influence sur le monde du design japonais.”

Romeyn Beck Hough, The Woodbook

Taschen’s Woodbook is a beautiful facsimile of American Woods. Romeyn Beck Hough culled and assembled between 1888 and 1913 specimens of hundreds of American trees and published them in 14 volumes with real specimens.
For all trees, three different cross-section cuts of wood are represented (radial, horizontal, and vertical), demonstrating the particular characteristics of the grain and the wealth of colors and textures to be found among the many different wood types. Also included in this special edition are lithographs by Charles Sprague Sargent of the leaves and nuts of most trees, as well as texts describing the trees’ geographical origins and physical characteristics.

Ola-Dele Kuku

When I first saw one of Ola-Dele Kuku’s furniture pieces, I was immediately captured. This piece was exhibited in the Design Museum Ghent. Actually, ‘furniture’ is a misleading label. The objects he creates certainly present themselves as furniture, but they do not limit themselves to mere functionality. All his creations boast an unusual playfulness, as […]
