Description
Nicknamed the "man of steel" because he pioneered the use of the material for furniture in the 1920s, years before mass production on a large scale was possible, René Herbst created enduring furniture designs marked by simplicity and functionality as well as industrial elegance. Herbst was a staunch modernist and founding member and later president of the Union des artistes modernes (UAM) in France, which sought to make domestic comfort accessible to all, regardless of class. Illustrated in large archival photos, this book presents a selection of the best works from the Herbst Collection at the library of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and focuses on Herbst's pathbreaking role in promoting modern living.
