Furniture by Architects reveals how the same fundamental principles used in building design can be applied at a much smaller scale, resulting in pieces of furniture that embrace function, beauty and context to become objects of art. For centuries, architects have turned their hand to custom furniture in a practice that has resulted in a number of iconic designs, including the timeless Eames Lounge and Ottoman and the ubiquitous Barcelona chair created by Mies van der Rohe for his acclaimed Barcelona Pavilion.  

Featuring an introduction that explores the history of architect-designed furniture, from the organic forms of Antoni Gaudis singular vision to the geometric creations of Frank Lloyd Wright, Furniture by Architectsshowcases furniture designed by contemporary architects working at the cutting edge today to create the iconic pieces of tomorrow.ᅠ

MELBOURNE HOME DESIGN & LIVING 
Furniture by Architects introduces the reader to a range of innovative and exciting architect- designed furniture pieces. From a table made with a 10,000-year-old fallen red gum log to a sustainable, reusable Christmas tree and a credenza that is lit from within and comprised of 17 acrylic cube-like partitions, the book offers enlightenment about architect- designed furniture and the beautiful projects that can be achieved when function and form successfully unite.

SPECIFIER MAGAZINE
Transposing their unique visual aesthetic into household items, leading architects have produced exquisite creations that both reflect and adapt their inherent architectural sensibilities. Furniture by Architects exhibits a diverse range of bespoke household items that embrace functionality and go further to create unique works of art. Zaha Hadid's Liquid Glacial Dining and Coffee Table captures the fluidity of her architecture in an almost literal way, with waves and ripples punctuating a clear plexiglass surface, while Foster + Partners take their modern minimalism to a particularly sleek floor lamp. By displaying the lesser known pursuits of these firms, Furniture by Architects explores the diversity and breadth of architectural design.

Even if you can't own a building designed by Zaha Hadid, you could (if you were very lucky) have her 'Liquid Glacial' table. Or a 'Flo' light by Foster + Partners. Here you can see what slice of architect heaven you would choose for your home, from the contemporary to the classic.
