For the first time, the development of interiors and furniture in Switzerland from the end of the nineteenth century to the present day have been surveyed and documented. Following the two introductory essays, seven chapters focus each on a time span of 15 years, with detailed information on the definitive masterpieces of that period. Some 20 representative interiors reveal the significant changes in living space during the 20th century. A fully illustrated catalogue of over 300 objects from furniture to ceramics and household objects and around 150 biographies conclude the publication. Edited by Professor Arthur RA1/4egg, this fascinating compendium of the great classics in Swiss design contains much previously inaccessible information, rare early works and invaluable details on the origins and production of the objects. A large part of the furniture has been photographed especially for this publication and model furnished interiors have been drawn to the same scale.
