"100 Masterpieces of Design" showcases one of the world's largest design collections. Founded in the early 1990s, the Pompidou's collection includes more than 200 designers and houses over 8,000 international pieces. Among its wide-ranging holdings are milestone pieces--the prototype of the Grand Confort Chair by Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret (1928) and Pierre Chareau's desk for Robert Mallet-Stevens (1927), for example--and practical, everyday triumphs of design, like the Bic Cristal ballpoint pen (1950). These works are celebrated in this volume alongside pieces by some of the most influential designers of modern furniture--Alvar Aalto, Gae Aulenti, Harry Bertoia, Marcel Breuer, Charles and Ray Eames, Eileen Gray, Arne Jacobsen, Carlo Mollino, Isamu Noguchi, Gio Ponti, Gerrit Rietveld and Mies van der Rohe, to name just a few.
