This is the first book to celebrate the life and work of Grant Featherston (1922-1995), the Melbourne-based industrial designer most well known for his Contour chairs.
Featherston, later joined by his second wife, Mary, designed hundreds of chairs; however, this astonishing Australian industrial design partnership has gone largely uncelebrated until now. This book focuses on the chairs produced between 1947 and 1975 and presents a new biography of the designer, drawn from archival research and interviews with his peers. It comes extensively illustrated, with over 250 beautiful photographs.
