Book Review: Jean-Michel Frank

Jean-Michel Frank – During the 1920s and 1930s, Jean-Michel Frank, the self-made man of design, invented his own unique style, which became a benchmark of minimalism, daringly new for the time. Just like the timeless little black dress, many of Frank’s furnishings still have the power to transform a space with understated elegance and continue to inspire. This book tells the story and shows the creations of one of the most important designers of the twentieth century. Join Best Design Books and discover everything!     Assouline presents a portrait of an iconic yet somewhat mysterious artist whose work illuminated the decorative arts in the twentieth century. Jean-Michel Frank never attended a school of architecture or design, yet during the 1920s and 1930s, this self-made interior designer honed and perfected his own unique style, which became a benchmark of Art Deco sophistication. Gold, silk, marble, and fine wood veneers were employed alongside straw marquetry, parchment, plaster, leather, canvas, and distressed oak. Collaborating with the best artists of the time, including Alberto Giacometti and Christian Bérard, Frank designed and art directed streamlined yet sumptuous interiors for notable patrons from Marie-Laure and Charles de Noailles, Nelson Rockefeller, and Elsa Schiaparelli to French…

The Red Thread: Simplicity, Beauty and Functionality of Nordic Design

The Red Thread: Simplicity, Beauty and Functionality of Nordic Design – An elegant exploration of the hugely influential simplicity, beauty, and functionality of Nordic design – timeless, yet on trend. From literature to food, lifestyle to fashion, cinema to architecture, Nordic influence is evident throughout contemporary culture. The Red Thread: Nordic Design celebrates this deep-rooted aesthetic, showcasing the diversity of design from Scandinavia and Finland via more than 200 objects – from everyday items to exquisitely produced decorative glassware, and from traditional handmade textiles to mass-produced products found in homes across the globe. The title is taken from a metaphor, common in the Nordic countries, of a shared and highlighted characteristic (like a long connecting thread in woven material), that runs through and connects themes, ideas, stories, and, in this case, design. Oak Publishing is an independent Copenhagen-based lifestyle publisher founded in 2013. Its biannual publication, Oak – The Nordic Journal showcases visionary talents through an insight into their life, ideas, and spaces. > Subscribe Best Design Books newsletter and get to know incredible Design Books! “…Prob[es] the creative philosophy of functionality and simplicity that has made Nordic pieces staples of tasteful interiors the world over.”—Surface “This beautifully bound volume celebrates Nordic design…
