"Best of German Interior Design" introduces the reader to the fifty most renowned German designers and fifty leading German manufacturers of home interior products. It portrays a scene that, in its self-perception, tends to fly "below the radar." Around the world, by contrast, German creators and manufacturers enjoy an excellent reputation. German furniture, kitchens, and faucets now compete with the best European products, winning consumers over with original ideas as well as superior workmanship. Major names and brands not only represent a significant industry, they also stand for the highest aesthetic standards in home design and lifestyle. This opulently illustrated coffee-table book presents numerous iconic products that demonstrate interior design "Made in Germany." Essays by well-known writers bring key topics in contemporary design discourse into focus. With contributions by Dr. Angelika Nollert, director, Die Neue Sammlung--The Design Museum, Munich, and others.
