Merrell, 2004 - Design - 215 pages
"Design [does not equal] Art presents distinctive functional designs that share the limited palette, materials, and elegant, geometric abstract forms characteristic of Minimalist and post-Minimalist art, including pine desks and porcelain tableware by Judd, stone and steel tables and chairs by Burton, lamps by Tuttle, folding screens by LeWitt, rugs by Rosemarie Trockel and Barbara Bloom, daybeds by Whiteread, and much more." "Filled with hundreds of photographs and drawing on candid conversations with many of the artists, Design [does not equal] Art is an authoritative, essential resource for designers, scholars of Minimalist and post-Minimalist art, collectors, and anyone interested in furniture and design of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
