Schonbek Beyond Lighting Total Hits - 1851  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (4)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Introduction: A person of discernment will attempt to read all about you in the character of the rooms where you dine, entertain, write messages, sleep, and bathe. This is why monarchs in past centuries sank so much of the national treasury into decorating, why interior designers today might be seen as psychologists of sorts, and why we plan with passion and precision every texture and object in a room. The choice of a Schonbek crystal chandelier is pivotal. It makes a mere space into and aesthetic statement. And it's a compliment to your acumen. A Schonbek chandelier possesses all the qualities of a collectible: originality, craftmanship, history. Schonbek has been making crystal chandeliers since 1879. It was founded in Bohemia by Adolf Schonbek, one of a long line of Schonbeks who dedicate their lives to beauty. Historic Schonbek crystal hangs in Buckingham Palace and the White House. The prismatic luminosity of a Schonbek crystal chandelier creates and amazing, caressing quality of light, rendering every gesture significant, every gathering glorious. You'll feel like the star of your own movie when you live with a Schonbek.

The lighting designer is at once an artist and an engineer. He uses the best technology available to reveal scope, space, and form—both in landscapes and in urban environments—and aims to do so in a way that achieves a functional, creative, and environmental result. This relatively recent profession is the focus of the latest title in teNeues’ Ultimate series. Lighting Design presents an illustrated overview of Hervé Descottes’ many projects. Founder of the renowned New York design firm L’Observatoire International, Descottes collaborated with architects such as Frank Gehry (Walt Disney Concert Hall, LA), Mario Botta, Jean Nouvel and OMA/Rem Koolhaas (three museums in Seoul, South Korea), and Richard Meier (Restaurant 66, New York City).

Made of Light : The art of Light and Architecture Total Hits - 1533  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (23)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Our visual world is made of light. We light to see and to communicate. We light for security, to create mood and atmosphere, to enhance and entertain. Where natural light fails man has learned to improvise, constantly developing new technologies to illuminate art and architecture.
Our visual experience and emotional reaction to buildings is shaped by the control of light and shadow. Light is increasingly integrated into the fabric of buildings and becomes a part of the architecture.
Jonathan Speirs and Mark Major are experienced, award-winning Lighting Architects working internationally at the forefront of lighting design. This vividly illustrated book explores the influences that inspire their work. It investigates the basic properties and qualities of light, presents a sketchbook of ideas and observations, and includes an in-depth interview.

Architecture in Detail: Elements Total Hits - 923  |  Hits Today - 1Rating:   Rating Average (11)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Elements is the second volume in the Architecture in Detail series, which presents a collection of new projects in which the designer's ideas are evident in the minor moments of space, such as the curve of a handrail, the profile of a cabinet, the form and texture of a wall. The images feature staircases to doors and windows, all used to shape a broad variety of residential, commercial, and institutional environments. The details often challenge our perceptions of elemental form, in some cases creating fanciful hybrids of many elements in one. All are records of the enormous conceptual presence a detail can hold as well as its power to infuse architecture with effects of poetry, delicacy, tension, and surprise.
