Presenting illustrations gathered together for the first time, Le Corbusier. Furniture and Interiors is a comprehensive account of Le Corbusier’s extensive work in furniture and interior design. As a young architect, Swiss-born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret primarily worked in designed furnishings. After he moved to Paris in the early 1920s and adopted his now famous moniker, Le Corbusier developed a particular interest in équipement, a term he coined for the essential furnishings of a residence. He focused specifically on tables, cabinets, and eventually the chrome and leather chairs—designed in collaboration with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand—for which he became famous. These pieces exhibit Le Corbusier’s trademark metal detailing and elegant austerity. After World War II, Le Corbusier shifted to more functional designs for use in everyday life. These wooden pieces resemble packing crates, evoking a rustic design aesthetic rooted in functionality.            Le Corbusier. Furniture and Interiorsis the authoritative book on Le Corbusier’s work as an interior designer. A stunning catalog in scale and scope, it follows the evolution of his style chronologically, making it an easy-to-use resource for both scholars and general readers. Entire apartments by Le Corbusier are described in careful detail with complementary images. Drawing upon previously unpublished material and new research, this equally well-designed book contains hundreds of illustrations, making it an invaluable resource for art historians, dealers, and collectors.

About the Author:

Arthur Rüegg was professor of architecture and building construction at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich from 1991–2007. He published widely on architecture and architectural history in books and journals and is a renowned expert on Le Corbusier. 

Review:

“Rüegg’s magnificent new book, Le Corbusier. Furniture and Interiors 1910–1965, presents an aspect of Le Corbusier’s career that is little known, especially in the English-speaking world: his lifelong preoccupation with the decorative arts. . . . The book is a superb contribution to Le Corbusier scholarship, one that far surpasses previous studies and reveals a profound understanding not only of his furniture and interiors but also of the man himself.” (Journal of Design History 2015-08-13)

Book Description Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Scheidegger & Spiess | The Complete Catalogue Raisonné | Le Corbusier (1887-1965) ist als Architekt und Möbelgestalter weltbekannt. Der würfelförmige Ledersessel LC4 von 1928 und die 1929 entworfene Liege LC2 gehören zu den Klassikern der Moderne. Während zu Le Corbusiers Architektur und zu den Möbeln aus den späten 1920er-Jahren viele Publikationen vorliegen, ist keine einzige zu seinem Gesamtschaffen als Möbeldesigner und Gestalter von Inneneinrichtungen erschienen. Nun schliesst der opulente Band 'Le Corbusier - Furniture and Interiors 1905-1965' diese Lücke. Arthur Rüegg hat in jahrelanger Arbeit den kommentierten Werkkatalog sämtlicher auffindbarer Möbelentwürfe erarbeitet und bringt die Interieurs und Einrichtungsgegenstände in Bild und präziser Textbeschreibung zur Darstellung.Der vollständige Werkkatalog mit rund 340 Objekten wird ergänzt durch reich illustrierte Essays, die die verschiedenen Phasen von Le Corbusiers Möbelentwürfen abdecken: vom Frühwerk über die berühmten Entwürfe aus den 1920er- und 1930er- Jahren bis zu den auf das Minimalste reduzierten späteren Möbeln. Auch die Zusammenarbeit mit Pierre Jeanneret und Charlotte Perriand wird detailliert behandelt.Das umfassende Kompendium zum Schaffen Le Corbusiers als Innenarchitekt und Designer ist für Architekten, Kunsthistorikerinnen, Möbelfachleute und Designinteressierte unverzichtbar. Es dokumentiert sämtliche eruierbaren Möbelentwürfe und Interieurs in einem kommentierten Werkkatalog. Berücksichtigt sind vor allem mobile, auf eine Serienherstellung hin konzipierte Elemente, in Ausnahmefällen aber auch fest mit der architektonischen Hülle verbundene Einbauten von prototypischem Charakter. Da all diese Stücke innerhalb von konkreten Projekten entstanden, werden die zusammengehörigen Gruppen jeweils mit einer Kurzbeschreibung des Kontexts eingeleitet. Der Catalogue raisonné umfasst rund 340 Einträge. | Format: Hardback | Language/Sprache: english | 2590 gr | 416 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783858817280
