Why is the architect Meinhard von Gerkan designing furniture? Apparently, because no other pieces were available on the market that may have possibly substitute them. These designs were necessary to promote the architect’s dream of the perfect design of house and interior. The book gives an insight into the architect’s aesthetic: With clear, predominantly geometric forms, refined using high-quality materials anyd with a markedly sensual component the pieces of furniture show a design philosophy, which opposes the market of rapid wear and tear by providing (multi-)functional, simple, and durable design objects instead.
