Summary "Industrial-style furniture is in fashion--bistro tables and chairs, lockers, mail sorting racks, and jointed lamps are all common elements in today's interior design. In the book Industrial Chic, Brigitte Durieux, one of the most well-known experts on the style, tells us the story behind 50 European and American objects that have made the surprising transition from factories to our living rooms and become cult furniture. The remarkable histories of these 50 significant objects--including the Gras lamp, the Singer stool, the Holophane reflector, the Brillie clock, and more--accompany brilliant photographs by Laziz Hamani. Featuring more than 250 images, Industrial Chic is a beautifully illustrated showcase that reveals the incredible reach, versatility, and long-lasting appeal of industrial design"-- Provided by publisher.
