This volume, published to coincide with the exhibition organized by the Vitra Design Museum, gathers together the material relative to the furniture designed for some of the most important works in the German master's production during the 1920s and 30s: the building for the Weissenhof in Stuttgart, the Barcelona pavilion and the Tugendhat villa in Brno. Research on living space within modern housing and the application of the most advanced technology combine to form an aesthetic that has inspired a great many design projects during the post-World War II period and up to the present-day debate. The 30 objects Mies van de Rohe designed for these interiors between 1926 and 1932 are carefully analyzed in their planning, their execution and in their relationship with the architectural space for which they were intended. The book, featuring essays by Otakar Macel, Werner Blaser, Wolf Tegethoff, Lenka Kudelkova, Karin Schulte and Mateo Kries, is illustrated with original photographs, sketches of the buildings and the objects, and is completed by a detailed catalogue of the design elements.
