Description - Form Follows Technique: A Design Manifesto by Richard Schultz
Based on a series of lectures developed by noted furniture designer Richard Schultz, this brief, striking book lays out his design manifesto both challenging and adding to Louis Sullivan's credo "form follows function." From African stools carved from a single log to advanced techniques of laminating wood; from simple twisted wire chairs to complex wire furniture bending in three axes; and from basic stonework to iconic post-and-beam structures, the art of design evolves along with the available materials and techniques. Combining Zen wisdom, examples of classic furniture, and a lifetime of experience as a designer, Schultz explores how technology both limits and fosters innovative design. It is the author's hope that this book will encourage students, designers, and others to think about new materials and techniques so that they, too, will create iconic designs. AUTHOR: Richard Schultz, noted furniture designer, has designed numerous pieces considered modern classics during his time at Knoll and through his own design firm, which have been featured in collections at the Museum of Modern Art, the Louvre, and many others.
