About this title

Synopsis:

From history to theory to technology: a comprehensive survey of furniture design.

Designing furniture is both an art and a science that draws upon a broad range of knowledge and disciplines. It is helpful for today's furniture designers to have a working knowledge of furniture history, technology, aesthetics, the human body, architectural production, interior design, industrial design, and art. Furniture Design is a comprehensive survey that guides the reader through the essential facets of design and more.

The book explores:

  • Fundamental ideas of function and social use.
  • Form, spatial organization, and typological orders.
  • Structural integrity and composition.
  • The design process.
  • Materials and fabrication processes.
  • Marketing and professional practice.
  • A historical overview of furniture design up to the twenty-first century.

A highlight of the book includes case studies of twenty-one furniture designs presenting a broad selection of works, designers, design processes, and fabrication techniques in one chapter. The book also features a glossary of terms and a comprehensive bibliography. In short, here is a one-stop resource about furniture design that designers will turn to regularly for the advice, guidance, and information needed to perform their craft.

About the Author:

Jim Postell is an Associate Professor in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning at the University of Cincinnati. He has taught design studio and seminar courses for twenty-three years and maintains an active design practice.
