Mid-Century Modern: Australian Furniture Design
30cm x 25cm. xviii, 202 pages, colour illustrations. Quarter cloth, pictorial matte papered boards.
Covering the 1940s to 1970s, Mid-Century Modern comprises the first major survey of Australian furniture and designers, including Grant Featherston, Douglas Snelling, Fred Lowen, George Korody, Clement Meadmore, and Michael Hirst. Accompanying exquisite photography of iconic pieces, essays by prominent collectors, academics, architects and designers provide in-depth analysis of this uniquely innovative and influential period in Australian design. Contributors include Denise Whitehouse, writing on Grant Featherston, and Peter Atkins reflecting on the careers of Clement Meadmore and Michael Hirst. Neil Clerehan, Mary Featherston, Suzanna Shaw, and Dean Keep each examine the subject from a different perspective — that of the architect, designer, conservator, and collector respectively. Published in conjunction with the exhibition held at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia at Federation Square, 30 May – 19 October, 2014. Includes bibliographical references.
