Russel Wright, good design is for everyone: in his own words : designs for living, home, woodland garden
Manitoga/Russel Wright Design Center, 2001 - Design - 130 pages
Russel Wright (1904-76) was arguably the most influential U.S. designer of the early twentieth century. A visionary artist who pioneered the fusion of modern design and domestic practicality in his household wares, Wright brought his innovative design to the general U.S. public and changed the face of the American household.
Russel Wright: Good Design Is for Everyone focuses on the most influential and enduring aspects of Wright's art, which called for more informal and easier living through his houseware design and ecologically sensitive landscape design. Good Design collects many of Wright's essays and extensive illustrations, offering significant insight into Wright's philosophies about domestic design and its relationship to the modern American home. This book is both a thorough introduction to Russel Wright's work and a superb study of his creative process.
