Space Age Design

Astro design and high-tech aesthetics in high gloss: the illustrated book on the Space Age Revival 

The year is 1957: the Sputnik satellite orbits the earth, the race to the moon has begun - and the design scene catapults the futuristic space look into our living rooms: furniture with a high-tech aesthetic, space travel design, in short anything reminiscent of a rocket shape becomes an absolute must. And the fascination continues to this day: retrofuturism is on everyone's lips. Astro design, as it emerged with the popular culture of the 1960s, is currently experiencing a revival - time to celebrate the design icons of space-age furniture with this sensational illustrated book!  

Fantastic design photography in a great coffee table book  

Almost as legendary today as the moon landing itself is the revolutionary interior design of the space age. This impressive coffee table book pays tribute to the great names of the design scene. The high-tech aesthetics of their iconic designs are allowed to shine in brilliant photographs and texts: Just think of the experimental Marshmallow Sofa by George Nelson, the futurism-influenced shapes of the Astro Chair by Marco Zanuso or the Space Age bedroom furniture by Joe Colombo. 

A magnificent illustrated book that becomes a summit meeting of design icons 

Peter Martin, a renowned journalist, author and design connoisseur like no other, has created a wonderful coffee table book that revels in the legendary design era between celebrated space technology, Sputnik hype and science fiction. The revolutionary geometry of the Tulip Chair by Eero Saarinen - almost weightless with just one chair leg, or the iconic spherical Ball Chair by Eero Aarnio, metallic design such as the Platner Chair by Werner Platner, but also the Noguchi Coffee Table by Isamu Noguchi, a masterpiece between sculpture and functionalism: all the highlights that made the technological avant-garde and design aficionados of the Space Age revel are collected here!
