A revealing look at the intimate living spaces of key contemporary designers.
What should "home" look like today? Here we discover how influential designers work, relax, and are inspired by their personal and professional surroundings. And there are plenty of surprises, from Harry Allen's converted mortuary in Manhattan to the Bouroullec brothers' carpenter's workshop in a Parisian suburb.
This diverse group of designers—from America, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, and the UK—are among those who lead and shape our every design decision, from the chairs we sit on to the hotel rooms we sleep in.
The philosophies of the featured designers are revealed through the pertinent question-and-answer section: they share their ideas on design, personal space, inspirations, work methods, and how we live now and maybe living in the future.
With special photography by Grant Scott, this book provides a unique opportunity for all those professionally involved in or just passionate about design to discover what the world's leading shapers of taste choose for themselves in creating their own homes. 218 color illustrations.
