    DescriptionThe first comprehensive book on the furniture, textiles and other works of two of the most important and influential artists of the twentieth century. 'Designs for Living' features innovative objects that the couple designed for their homes while teaching at the Bauhaus in Germany and following their move to the United States in 1933 and includes specially commissioned photographs of important but little-known works. Illuminating essays celebrate the Alberses' endless creativity and set their ground-breaking work in the context of international Modernism. This book will appeal to students, art historians, collectors and anyone interested in twentieth-century design.
