Op to Pop
Furniture of the 1960sBook - 1999
From Joe Colombo's "kitchen in a cart" to Olivier Mourgue's Djinn chairs from 2001: A Space Odyssey, from the lipstickted touch shaped like Marilyn Monroe's lips to Eero Aarnio's space-age Ball chair, sixties furniture still has the power to statle and to delight. Op to Pop is a thorough guide whose original, readable scholarship places sixties furnishings in their social and design contexts, sorting the good from the fad and providing names, dates, and other documentation. From fashion to film, the sixties refuse to fade away and for good reason, as Greenberg proves. A fun, colorful survey of the design of the decade, Op to Pop will enthrall those who lived through the sixties as well as those who are discovering those years a new.
