Museum of Modern Art, 1981, First edition, 192 pp., 7 1/2" X 10", Hardcover
"This book offers the first comprehensive study of Marcel Breuer's enormously influential designs for furniture and interiors. Trained at the Bauhaus, with its emphasis on knowledge of materials, the young Breuer brought to his work a vital originality of conception and freedom of mind. His invention of tubular-steel furniture, uniquely suited to the modern interior and to modern methods of mass production, was revolutionary, setting off a tremendous burst of creativity in the world of design.
Based on research in archives and collections in Europe and the United States and on interviews with Breuer himself and with colleagues and manufacturers, this book offers a remarkably detailed account of the Breuer contribution in furniture and interiors"
