Zum Buch
From the 1920s through the 1950s, Paul T. Frankl was the dean of American designers. From his galleries on East Forty-eighth Street and Madison Avenue in New York, and, later, on Wilshire Boulevard and Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, Frankl pushed the boundaries of the new design, shaping the distinctive look of American interiors and furniture, and influencing many of his peers. This never-before published work, written at the end of Frankl’s long career, is a vivid account of his early life, his rise in the profession, and his many travels in search ideas and forms. Frankl’s descriptions of the nascent years of modernism offer a striking portrait of the first stirrings of a new design culture.
