Whether it's a lipstick-red love seat shaped like Marilyn Monroe's lips, an anthropomorphic "man" chaise, a bean bag chair, or a "domestic capsule unit," 1960s furniture still has the power to startle and delight. In Op to Pop, Cara Greenberg takes on this little-explored but exciting and fertile era of furniture design, providing original, readable scholarship that places '60s furnishings in a cultural context and helps sort the good from the fad. She explores in detail the roots of and influences on '60s design, from space travel to Pop Art, in a joyful visual tour of the decade's bold and fresh-looking furniture output. Op to Pop features 250 photographs plus a source guide to the growing number of outlets for 1960s furniture design.
