FEATHERSTON - De Geoff Isaac
Considered as one of the most important Australian designers of all time, Grant Featherston will go down in history as an insatiable creator. His work, primarily chairs, are known for their curved shapes, a clearly identifiable hallmark of their era. This volume comes after four years of research, which traces his work from the 1940s to the 1970s, and includes interviews with figures such as Ian Howard, director of Aristoc, the company that produced the majority of his designs.
UPGRADE. HOME EXTENSIONS, ALTERATIONS AND REFURBISHMENTS
This book explores the complex world of renovations, but applied to very specific situations and spaces. It thereby analyses the possibilities offered by different spaces that can transform neutral spaces or rooms into real spaces with plenty of content, and weighs the benefits of these changes. Added materials, changes in distribution or playing with styles can radically change the feel of any room.
The first and only biography published so far of this US designer reveals a creative career that has spanned over five decades. Architect, interior designer, furniture designer, creator of textiles and objects: Ward is the example of how good design and simple forms can make a hugely successful pairing. The book includes many unpublished documents and previously unseen material.

In his graphic work you will discover his many influences, ranging from the rhythms of hip hop to zombies, of which he is a great fan. A book to understand the essence of the comic avant-garde.
