SITTING PRETTY

© Chairpedia, 101 Stories of Chairs,
edited by Andreu World,
La Fábrica, 2020.

The latest release from renowned Spanish
furnishings brand Andreu World is not
a new article of furniture but rather a
book that celebrates the storied history
of what the company refers to as " the
queen piece in the history of furniture " :
the chair. An illustrated journey through
many styles and stories, Chairpedia
elevates this everyday item to celebrity
status via tales from writers, specialists,
and historians of design, architecture,
and art. Together, they tell the stories
of the many colorful faces who have
designed and sat in iconic examples
of seating over time. The encyclopedic
endeavor was directed by Ramón Úbeda
and features the work of 20 authors
sharing compelling stories of chairs.
The very visual tome also includes
101 illustrations, 21 portraits, and
245 chair drawings created by graphic
designer and illustrator Antonio Solaz
of Andreu World.

ARCHITECTURAL
BRANDING
Architect and architectural historian
Grace Ong Yan, Ph.D., explores the relationship
between a brand's identity and the architecture
created around it in Building Brands: Corporations
and Modern Architecture. The book examines
how consumer perception and the emotional
response humans experience toward architecture
have driven the design of buildings that house
brands and thereby communicate their messages.
With a focus on the late 1920s to the 1960s,
Ong Yan uses the creation of four corporate
headquarters-the Johnson Wax Headquarters in
Racine, Wisconsin, by Frank Lloyd Wright; Lever
House in New York by SOM; and in Philadelphia,
the Rohm & Haas Building by Pietro Belluschi
and the PSFS Building by Howe and Lescaze-
to illustrate the intertwined development of
architecture, advertising, and branding during the
period. The work offers insight into mid-century
American modernism and the effect architecture
can have on the human consciousness.

STEP INTO THEIR PARLORS

Modern Architecture, by

U.S.: February 2021.

Anyone with an affection for design and architecture has a
favorite movie home. And when seeking some of the sleekest
style of the silver screen, one need look no further than the home
of a villain. With writer and editor Andrea Gollin, architect
Chad Oppenheim celebrates the sinister and sophisticated
places evil calls home in Lair: Radical Homes and Hideouts
of Movie Villains. The dark pages place focus on the mostly
modern and thoroughly outrageous dwellings from 15 films,
including The Spy Who Loved Me, The Incredibles, Ex Machina,
and Star Wars. The book combines photographs, renderings,
essays, interviews with film industry professionals, and critical
analysis to examine why villains are historically privilege to
such remarkable architecture and how their evil lairs are natural
extensions of their cunning personalities.
