HIGH-TECH
The Industrial Style and Source Book for the Home

“HIGH-TECH: The Industrial Style and Source Book for the Home” is, as the title suggests, THE resource book on HIGH-TECH. Published in 1978, this is the first printing of this amazing and influential design book. “How to outfit your home with paraphernalia originally developed for factories, battleships, dry cleaners, laboratories, Chinese restaurants, and hundreds of other commercial and industrial uses.” “Gym lockers in the bedroom, factory lamps over the dining table, detection mirrors over the dressing table, movers’ pads for upholstery, Con Ed guardrails for towel racks, I beams for end tables, steno chairs for dining chairs, supermarket doors swinging into the kitchen, warehouse shelving in the living room, scaffolding beds, test tubes for bud vases —  something exciting is happening in home furnishings and it’s called high-tech.  If you haven’t heard about it yet, you will soon.  And its meaning will soon become as familiar as art deco or art nouveau. A play on the words “high-style” and “technology”, “high-tech” is a term being used in archtectural circles to describe an increasing number of residences and public buildings with a nuts-and-bolts-exposed-pipes technological look or to describe residences made of prefabricated components more commonly used to build warehouses or factories.  Authors Joan Kron and  Suzanne Slesin, two infuential home-furnishings reporters, have expanded this  definition to include a parallel trend in interior design — the use of commonplace commercial and industrial equipment in the home. HIGH-TECH is a breakthrough book about a revolution in design that is sweeping the country — in fact, the world.  It is the first in-depth look at the industrial aesthetic as applied to architecture and home furnishings.”

Richly illustrated across 286 pages that showcase applications of industrical and technological components to residential interiors and home furnishing, the contents include: “THE INDUSTRIAL AESTHETIC”; “STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS”; “SYSTEMS”; “STORAGE”; “FURNITURE”; “MATERIALS”; “LIGHTING”; “THE WORKS”; “FINISHING TOUCHES”, covering everything from Display Systems, Mezzanines and Greenhouses, to Embossed Metals, Laboratory Glass and Food Preparation devices.

Includes the work of Sir Joseph Paxton, George Fred Keck, Pierre Chareau, Charles and Ray Eames, Michael Hopkins, Helmut Schulitz, Peter de Bretteville, Ward Bennett, Joseph Paul D’Urso, Richard Rogers, Renzo Piano, Michael Schnaible, Michael Graves, to name but a few. Edited by Joan Kron and Suzanne Slesin, both influential American reporters on home furnishings with The New York Time, Esquire, Industrial Design, Abitare, and Domus, amongst others. Introduction by Emilio Ambasz, prize-winning architect and designer, and curator of design at the Museum of Modern Art. Design by Walter Bernard, who was art director of Time magazine and New York magazine.

Printed in Italy.
This is the first printing of this book from 1978.
