Living with good design-modernists have proposed since the beginning of the last century-is a way of improving and enriching life. In this exceptional book, readers are invited to enjoy the experience of living with great modern design and to learn the basic tenets of the modernist aesthetic. Modernists Michael and Gabrielle Boyd have created the ultimate modernist experience-restoring Oscar Neimeyer's only American house and grounds to the original state; building and living with perhaps the world's preeminent collection of modernist furniture, objects, and books; and learning from the benefits that good design brings forth.In a style evoking Charles and Ray Eames's filmic approaches, the book shows off some of the finest 20th-century design, from rarely published examples by Gerrit Rietveld and Eileen Gray to icons of modern furniture by Jean Prouvé and Arne Jacobsen, these are the prime embodiments of the modernist mission to create innovative and beautiful products for a broad audience.From the interplay of the natural environment with architectural features and the rich array of elegant details of the Niemeyer house to the breathtaking design collection, the book will inspire all who love the modernist lifestyle.
