1.050,00 €0,00 €

Chosen by design expert Frédéric Chambre, this selection of furniture designs unfolds like the frames of a film, an epic image composed of a hundred years of creative innovations in form, materials and techniques. As in art history, themes can be traced through changing trends: design vs. machine, design vs. craft, design vs. art, a story that continues to unfold.

This oversized, hand-bound deluxe edition traces the development of 20th-century design from the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements through the Bauhaus and Art Deco, Pop Art and the Memphis school, to today's digital age, illustrating the story of an innovative century.

Stunningly photographed, this deluxe limited edition is hand-bound and presented in a linen box.

Complimentary white gloves and an exclusive tote bag are included with every Assouline's Ultimate Collection purchase.
