📒Interior Design And Identity ✍ Susie McKellar
✏Interior Design and Identity Book Summary : This chronologically arranged set of case studies looks at how interior design has constantly redefined itself as a manifestation of culture, from the eighteenth-century to the present day. The book looks at the amateur activities of female "home makers" in search of creative outlets and married couples seeking to modernize their homes as well as the contributions of early professional (female) "interior decorators," and later, (male) "interior designers." It also considers the more anonymous role of commercial enterprises, such as hairdressing salons, cruise ships or modern offices. Issues relating to interiority, gender, and the relationship of the public sphere are also considered opening up a new level of design historical enquiry.
📒Interiors And Interiority ✍ Ewa Lajer-Burcharth
✏Interiors and Interiority Book Summary : The book explores the historical connections between the notions of architectural interior, subjective space, human interiority, and represented space including virtual space. In the 18th century the notion of "interiority" understood as a paradigm of human subjectivity came to be articulated in a sustained way in architectural and visual, rather than only literary forms. While the notion of the interior and the processes of "interiorization" were, as Walter Benjamin demonstrated, the defining features of 19th-century bourgeois culture, it is the different forms of conceptual assault on, or deconstruction of interiority that define the approach to space and self in the 20th and 21st centuries. The book examines models of understanding "interiority" as these were developed in relation to notions of space and spatial experience.
📒The Rise Of Design ✍ Charles Saumarez Smith
✏The Rise of Design Book Summary : A milestone in the history of interior design, Eighteenth Century Decoration provides a highly original and authoritative account of the appearance of rooms at all levels of society and how and why attitudes to decoration changed. Charles Saumarez Smith relates the changes in style and taste to broader aspects of the history of the period and quotes contemporary novelists and travellers to illustrate how interiors were described in their day. He examines the role of the architect traces the emergence of the professional designer, charts how various industries flourished and the skills of specialist craftsmen grew in response to fresh demands, and gives pioneering account of how and why women first began to take a special interest in decoration. The result is a comprehensive source book to anyone interested in eighteenth century culture.
📒A Rare Treatise On Interior Decoration And Architecture ✍ Joseph Friedrich zu Racknitz
✏A Rare Treatise on Interior Decoration and Architecture Book Summary : This volume translates and examines a rare conspectus of architectural and decorative taste published at the very end of the eighteenth century. Baron Joseph Friedrich zu Racknitz’s pioneering Presentation and History of the Taste of the Leading Nations in Relation to the Interior Decoration of Rooms and to Architecture (Darstellung und Geschichte des Geschmacks der vorzüglichsten Völker in Beziehung auf die innere Auszierung der Zimmer und auf die Baukunst) is little known today. Racknitz, a German aristocrat, traced an early global history of design and ornament through discussions of what he distinguished as twenty-four regional historical tastes. He included a diverse group of ancient classical civilizations, European nations and peoples, Eastern civilizations, and more exotic reaches of the world. This sensitive and informed translation by Simon Swynfen Jervis includes reproductions of the original color plates and essays on Racknitz’s biography, his publication, and the deeper German Enlightenment context, making this an essential volume for eighteenth- and nineteenth-century architecture, decorative arts, and garden design.
