Decorative Art 1938 - "The Studio" Year Book

Decorative Art 1938 - "The Studio" Year Book - Thirty-third Annual Issue

This book presents a comprehensive review of trends, directions and controversies regarding architecture and the decorative arts. In the period between the two World Wars designers and architects sought to negotiate between the extremes of "function" at all costs and "style" at all costs. There was also the strongly felt need for individual expression. At the same time the newly emerged field of industrial design began to stretch the boundaries and definition of design. This book reads like a Who's Who of architects, furniture designers, textile, glass, pottery and metalware craftsmen. There are eight tipped-in color plates and numerous black and white plates. C. G.
