Hans-Theo Baumann lastingly shaped post-war design in the Federal Republic of Germany. His incisive designs are everywhere: in our kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms in the form of furniture, tableware, glass and cutlery. Distinguished by clarity of line, the objects he designed are as functional as they can be. His designs have been realised worldwide by leading businesses and, in his capacity as president of the Federation of German Industrial Designers, he has had a formative influence on how design is practised as a profession. This book fills a gap to provide as comprehensive a survey as possible of the many designs submitted by Hans-Theo Baumann in a wide variety of fields - porcelain, pottery, furniture, lighting, glass, cutlery and tableware, textiles, plastics and wood. Embark on a voyage of discovery to the origins of our present-day utilitarian objects.
