Industrial-style furniture is in fashion bistro tables and chairs, lockers, mail sorting racks and jointed lamps are all common elements in today's interior design. In this book, Brigitte Durieux, an authority on the style, tells us the story behind fifty European and American objects that have made the surprising transition from factories to our livings rooms and become cult furniture. Featuring more than 250 images, "Industrial Chic" is a beautifully illustrated showcase that reveals the incredible reach, versatility and long-lasting appeal of industrial design. The remarkable histories of these distinguished objects including the Gras lamp, the Singer stool, the Holophane reflector, the Brillie clock and more accompany brilliant photographs by Laziz Hamani.
