Addressing the trend toward minimalism and the fierce debates about the traditional role of craft in art, interior decoration, and architecture, this collection explores the controversy surrounding the intellectualization of the craft debate. Revealing how the upcoming generation of studio furniture makers views the history of the craft—and their place in it—the guide also examines methods used by painters and sculptors to apply craft values, Chinese antiques as inspiration, and new styles in the form and function of drawers.
