Comprehensive compendium on tubular steel furniture produced by Embru the most
important Swiss furniture company in the area of modernist furniture
production. Furniture by designers such as Alvar Aalto, Altherr, Hans Bellmann,
Marcel Breuer, Siegfried Giedion, Max Ernst Haefeli, Gustav Hasenpflug,
Charles Hoch, Wilhelm Kienzle, Werner max Moser, Alfred Roth, Flora
Steiger-Crawford produced from both tubular steel and aluminium. Particularly
invaluable catalogue for dealers, auction houses and collectors as it details
the different production versions and dates of the versions of Aalto, Breuer
and Moser designs amongst others. Whilst the Breuer link to Isokon is pretty
obvious and P.E. Gane of Bristol retailed Breuer's Embru chairs there is also
the shelving of Kienzle which was produced in Birmingham buy Isokon under
licence from Embru. This catalogue was produced by Embru on the re-edition of
some of the designs presumably to give weight to their historical importance.
