MACKINTOSH STYLE (Decor & design)

MACKINTOSH STYLE (Decor & design)

by ElizabethWilhide (Author)


Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Scotland's greatest architect and designer, was remarkable for the wide range of his achievements and the clarity of his vision. This book reviews his work in context and considers how his ideas can be freshly interpreted. Inspired by nature, fired by the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement, rooted in the vernacular traditions of his native region, Mackintosh's genius was to forge an entirely new style for a new age. Radical, but intensely personal, his architecture, interiors and furnishings retain all their essential vigour nearly a century after they were first conceived. In this study, Elizabeth Wilhide considers Mackintosh's handling of colour, use of materials and graphic approach to form. From knives and forks to fireplaces, tiles to wrought ironwork, tables to the arranging of flowers, his vision, once considered revolutionary, is relevant and inspiring to those willing to recreate the Mackintosh style.
