About the book:

The artist and architect Peter Smithson is one of the best-informed and insightful critics of Modernist and Postmodernist architecture. In Flying Furniture he sheds light on the construction of furniture, particularly mobile furniture, which has rendered obsolete the distinction between 'movables' and 'immovables.' The works featured here extend from Bauhaus up to the present day, representing such essential designers as Alison and Peter Smithson, Stefan Wewerka, El Lissitzky, Jean Prouvé, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe and Gerrit Rietveld. The book itself testifies to the possibilities and dynamism of the field of design with its unique shape, its playful layout and the witty remarks and quotations throughout.
