Cool furniture, design objects and desiderata - Page 251

post #3751 of 3754
Just added some in velvet to the other post.


I know american craft and arts and crafts aren't one and the same, but arts and crafts "died" as modernism began, which is why I wrote post arts and crafts.

Yeah Corbusier, Panton, Platner, Eames, etc. made things in different materials and Jacobsen, Eames etc. made stuff in plywood, which is why I wrote mostly. wink.gif

The Paul Evans designs came up and I wouldn't classify them as being MCM at all, as "they would really go with the rest" of the MCM stuff.

When I think of one offs and custom work, I think of stuff made my carpentry shops/cabinetmakers, which means it doesn't have a designer attached to it and would require the entire shop to reach a classic status, which is unlikely, I wouldn't mind some build in stuff though.

(I know Rud. Rasmussen pieces have a classic appeal, but they had a lot of famous architects design stuff for them).


The base of the idea is future classics and trying to guess, which will be classics in 20 years.

It is not a term I use or acknowledge and I've only ever heard it used by people with little knowledge of design.

I agree with that when it is used in a dismissive manner to quickly categorize, but it's not solely used by vapid design orbiters.

I always thought that these design classifications are very arbitrary and mostly made up by college 'academics' and salespeople. It is not like there is scientific method being used here ,so I don't quite share your indignation.
