International Style: Masterworks
from the Boyd Collection

Michael Webb

We are all modernists now—in the way we dress, the equipment we use, and the way we furnish our homes—even when the facades of those houses are period-style. The shock of the new has worn off and designs that were once considered daring have become part of the mainstream. Every bank lobby has a few Barcelona chairs—the first of which was hand-made in 1929 as a resting place for the King of Spain during his visit to Mies van der Rohe's Pavilion at the World's Fair in Barcelona. The chairs that Marcel Breuer created from bicycle tubing are archetypal, and the seating of Charles and Ray Eames can be found in lecture halls, offices, and airports around the world.
