A spectacular tour of the progressive houses born of the last great design revolution. Bringing together the great modern homes of yesterday and today, Living Modern not only provides an over view of the movement, but introduces the design novice to its domestic glories.
The authors guide this intimate tour through homes from the heyday of modernism from the legendary Villa Stein by Le Corbusier in the 20s to the Arne Jacobsen steel framed house of the 60s. Hundreds of stunning photos capture the beauty of the homes as well as reveal the large themes and small details that make them truly modern. Profiles of the leading pioneers of the movement plus a chapter devoted to contemporary homes that apply modern principles, provide reference and inspiration to anyone who wants to live the modern way.
Features aalto, breuer, le corbusier, mies van der rohe, neutra, panton, ponti, nelson, eames, johnson, jacobsen, wright and more.
