This sophisticated, full-color exhibition catalog documents, for the first time, a treasure-trove of 30 pieces of furniture designed by seminal Southern California modernist architect R.M. Schindler. Commissioned between 1937 and 1951 by Dr. Basia Gingold, a German-Jewish migr to Los Angeles, these works of Schindler's were unknown until Gingold's death in 2006 at 103 years old. Considering furniture a kind of micro-architecture, Schindler brought his vocabulary of building design into the scaled-down world of furniture-making. This impeccably designed book includes blueprints and sketches, photos of the furniture from multiple angles, large fold-out photos, and essays that shed further light on Schindler, Gingold, and the fruits of their relationship.
