Made in Denmark: Design Since 1900
From Kaare Klint via Arne Jacobsen to Verner Panton, they informed the product and home decor culture of whole generations particularly in the latter half. However, that equally significant designers, craftspeople and internationally observed trends that preceded this era receives far less attention. Yet it is Skonvirke, the Danish form of Art Nouveau, that created the basis for modern Danish design. In this comprehensive exhibition of Danish works, Art Deco trends are also featured as well as those of functionalism. 'Made in Denmark' was finally established as an international brand by 1945. Danish, and by extension Scandinavian, design has been a role model ever since and remains the epitome and expression of a timeless modern lifestyle to this day.

Starck, Secret Drawings: 4,000 Sketches Unveiled
Since the establishment of his studio, Ubik, in 1979, Philippe Starck has conceived more than 10,000 projects, and every single one of them has had the same principle: they must be at the disposal of the users. The object has to be fair and to provide a service - as functional as emotional. Starck embodies a democratic way of designing by asking himself: Why does this object deserve to be? He's a committed creator that belongs to an ever-changing contemporary world. That is why, for example, he has been a long-time defender of an ecological creative process. This catalogue, which follows the exhibition held at the Centre Pompidou Malaga, brings us right to the core of Starck's creative process - drawings, sketches, researches, and, of course, his most iconic objects.

Vincent Dubourg
Abandoned, forgotten form is reborn in the arms of an all-embracing nature, an envelope within which the origin of the human being, of a society gives us a sensibility, a presence of a fertility. - Vincent Dubourg. A graduate of the Ecole nationale superieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, Vincent Dubourg is a designer and a plastic artist. In 2004, he caught the eye of Julien Lombrail, founder of the Carpenters Workshop Gallery, where he has been exhibiting since 2006. Present at major salons and shows - the Pavillon des Arts et du Design, Paris; Design Miami Basel - he has received many public commissions from institutions such as Galeries Lafayette, Swarovski, Vienna, the musee de la chasse et de la nature, Paris, and the Sketch restaurant in London, among others. Vincent says that he feeds himself on the capitals like Paris and New York, which he regularly visits, and digests them in his isolated studio in the Creuse department in France. There, he questions contemporary furniture through the prism of nature and the five elements, like a perfect control of metal. With him, buffet, table and chairs become hallucinatory objects shifting between sculpture and functional furniture. A major exhibit will be devoted to him at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in New York in late 2017.

1000 Chairs. Updated version
More than any other piece of furniture, the chair has been subjected to the wildest dreams of the designer. The particular curve of a backrest, or the twist of a leg, the angle of a seat or the color of the entire artifact; each element reflects the stylistic consciousness of an era.From Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto to Verner Panton and Eva Zeisel, from Art Nouveau to International Style, from Pop Art to Postmodernism, the history of the chair is so complex that it requires a comprehensive encyclopedic work to do it full justice. They are all here: Thonet's bentwood chairs and Hoffmann's sitting-machines, Marcel Breuer's Wassily chair and Ron Arad's avant-garde armchairs. Early designers and pioneers of the modern chair are presented alongside the most recent innovations in seating.This dedicated compendium displays each chair as pure form, along with biographical and historical information about the pieces and their designers. An illuminating tome for design aficionados and an essential reference for collectors!

Dali the Wines of Gala
Hot on the heels (or lobster claws) of the best-selling Salvador Dali phenomenon, Les diners de Gala, TASCHEN presents the artist's equally surreal and sensual viticulture follow-up: The Wines of Gala. A Dalinian take on pleasures of the grape and a coveted collectible, the book sets out to organize wines according to the sensations they create in our very depths. Through eclectic metrics like production method, weight, and color, the book presents wines of the world in such innovative, Daliesque groupings as Wines of Frivolity, Wines of the Impossible, and Wines of Light. Bursting with imagery, the book features more than 140 illustrations by Dali. Many of these are appropriated artworks, including various classical nudes, all of them reconstructed with suitably Surrealist, provocative touches, like Jean-Francois Millet's The Angelus, one of Dali's favorite points of reference over the decades. Dali also included what is now considered one of the greatest works from his late Nuclear Mystic phase, The Sacrament of the Last Supper (1955), which sets the iconic biblical scene in a translucent dodecahedron-shaped space before a Catalonian coastal landscape. Dali was by this stage a devout Catholic, simultaneously captivated by science, optical illusion, and the atomic age. The first section is dedicated to Ten Divine Dali Wines, an overview of 10 important wine-growing regions, while the second develops Dali's revolutionary ordering of wine by emotional experience, instead of by geography or variety. Rather than any prescriptive classification, it's a flamboyant, free-flowing manifesto in favor of taste and feeling, as much a multisensory treat as a full-bodied document of Dali's late-stage oeuvre, in which the artist both reflected on formative influences and refined his own cultural legacy.

A section on Living with Postmodernism presents fifteen seminal homes and their furnishings; and a final section titled Postmodernism Continues is a comprehensive overview of contemporary makers.

This definitive volume also includes a foreword by Charles Jencks and an afterword by Denise Scott Brown, followed by a substantial reference section.

Remy Meijers - Simply Elegant
Interior architect Remy Meijers became famous for his ability to create balance in the most diverse spaces. The starting point of his work is a holistic approach in which all elements are perfectly matched. This approach creates interiors that exude a pleasant sense of repose, in all their simplicity. A good example is the prestigious 5-star hotel The Dylan in Amsterdam. But the estates, mansions, villas, cottages, commercial and exhibition spaces designed by Meijers' capable hands also reflect his vision of interior architecture. As part of his overall vision, Remy Meijers usually designs the furniture and accessories himself, both for his own collection and for a number of collections from leading brands. This book shows his most recent projects. An interior can only be balanced when every detail is thought about - Remy Meijers. The power of an interior is in its tranquillity not in its hassle. - Remy Meijers.

Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating
A fascinating exploration of Max Lamb's experimentation with materials, craft, and technology One of the most exciting designers working today, Max Lamb (b. 1980) has received international acclaim for his innovative experiments with materials, craft, and technology. Drawn to the form of the chair and its relationship to the human body, Lamb has explored many different inventive outcomes in his ever-evolving Exercises in Seating project. This book investigates over a decade of creative practice with a focus on his interest in seating--from stone thrones to wood chairs and enameled-steel stools. In Lamb's own words, A seat is very simple in function, but very complex in the many different characters, forms, and ideas it can express. Both retrospective and forward looking, this volume--created in collaboration with the artist--is the most thorough investigation of Lamb's work to date and features an exclusive interview with noted artist Ryan Gander in which the designer discusses his creative processes and goals.

This book complements the more textually-based Bauhaus scholarship with a practice-oriented and creative interpretive method, which makes it possible to consider Bauhaus-related works in an unconventional light. Edit Toth argues that focusing on the functionalist approach of the Bauhaus has hindered scholars from properly understanding its design work. With a global scope and under-studied topics, the book advances current scholarly discussions concerning the relationship between image technologies and the body by calling attention to the materiality of image production and strategies of re-channeling image culture into material processes and physical body space, the space of dimensionality and everyday activity.
