Descripción The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1941. Softbound. BW printed overwrap with same design as thick card stock covers. Orange color on rear cover. Mylar cover over dj. 48,  pp., profusely illustrated in bw. "We are not as modern as we like to think we are. The wonders of modern mechanism have wrought much more than a change in our habits of life. In spite of the enormous changes in the equipment of humanity on earth, in private, at home, most of us still live in the tasteless clutter of inheritance from the nineteenth century. Most of the out-dated and standardized furniture which still frames our lives is no longer satisfactory to our esthetic sense or even valid for practical needs. Furniture should be determined by our pattern of living, but instead, for the most part, we have unreasonably attempted to adapt ourselves to the artificially crystallized styles provided by the manufacturers. For several years the Museum of Modern Art has been studying this problem with a view to working out a cooperation between designer, manufacturer, and merchant, to fill this odd gap in the scene of contemporary life. As a result of this study the Department of Industrial Design of the Museum, on October 1, 1940, inaugurated a competition for the design of furniture, fabrics, and lamps. The purpose of this contest was to discover a group of designers capable of contributing to the creation of w useful and beautiful environment for today's living. Twelve important stores in the big cities of the country collaborated in the sponsorship of the competition and offered contracts with manufacturers as prizes to the winners. This volume, and the exhibition of which it is a catalog, is the graphic and dramatic result of those years of study and of the competition. The text analyzes both the furnishing needs of today's home as they have developed in the past fifty years, and the problem of the designer in meeting these needs effectively and economically. The photographs illustrate not merely the designs submitted in the competition but also the finished products executed from these designs and some of the steps in the manufacturing processes. This is a book that should be of the most vital interest to everyone who is concerned with relation of the most progressive modern industrial production to his own daily life." (dj).
