NEW FURNITURE 4
Gerd Hatje (editor) and Wolfgang Clasen (text): NEW FURNITURE 4 [NEW FURNITURE / NEUE MOBEL /MUEBLES NOUVEAUX]. NYC: George Witteenborn, 1958. First edition. Text in English, German, and French. A very good to near-fine hardcover book bound in full, decorated cloth in a near-fine dust jacket: the price-clipped DJ is lightly worn along the top edge. These highly coveted reference editions are seldomly found in collectible condition -- this particular copy is remarkably well-preserved. Interior unmarked and very clean. Out-of-print.
NEW FURNITURE / NEUE MOBEL /MUEBLES NOUVEAUX
Gerd Hatje (editor) and Wolfgang Clasen (text)
8.75 x 11.75 book, with 162 pages and 347 b/w photographs of contemporary furniture, circa 1958. Beautifully designed and printed in Germany on high-quality glossy paper. Highly recommended. These volumes -- whether you call them "Neue Mobel," "Meubles Nouveaux," or "Muebles Modernos" -- are actively sought and rarely remain on the market for long. You have been warned.
A complete index provides names and addresses of designers and manufacturers.
"New Furniture was conceived as a series devoted to the survey of international furniture. The fourth volume contains 347 illustrations showing the best and most interesting designs of chairs, sofas, beds, tables, cabinets, shelves, office furniture, and nursery furniture by designers from fifteen countries. This wide scope makes it possible for the reader to compare different trends and to discern future developments.
"A complete index that includes names and addresses of designers and manufacturers adds greatly to the usefulness of this volume. The magazine "Interiors" has called this series "probably the best international furniture review between two covers available anywhere. It is thorough and broad in its coverage, selected with great taste and a sharp sense of what constitutes interesting design news."
