Brian Lutz’s Eero Saarinen: Furniture for Everyman
USA- New York, NY | Jan 8 2013 | (23:04:05 - EDT)
One of the most celebrated, prolific, and unorthodox architects and designers of the 20th Century, Eero Saarinen has become a beacon of American modernism.
While famous for his sculptural and bold architecture, such as the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri and the TWA Terminal at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, “Eero Saarinen: Furniture for Everyman” is the first monograph to focus exclusively on his furniture designs. Featuring rare and never-before-seen archival photographs that span Saarinen’s technical work to his personal life, a preface by Florence Knoll, and a piece by designer and Saarinen protégé Niels Diffrient, Eero Saarinen is the authoritative and comprehensive guide to the furniture designs and legacy of the modern master.
About the Author:
Brian Lutz is a former Knoll associate and the author of "Knoll: A Modernist Universe" (2010). He also contributed to the exhibition catalog for "Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future".
On Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, the author Brian Lutz will be holding a book signing and discussion that covers the span of Saarinen's furniture design career at Van Alen Books in New York City.
