Description:The publication of Erwin Hauer Continua in 2004 set off a major critical reappraisal of the Austrian-born sculptor whose stunning perforated wall screens and modular structures of the 50s and 60s—revered by legendary mid-century designers such as Marcel Breuer and Florence Knoll Bassett—had all but been forgotten by this time, much of it destroyed or inaccessible. Fortunately, a large trove of photographs, drawings, and writings survived along with Hauer himself. All of this material is on glorious display in this long out of print hardcover edition. The moody photography—difficult to reproduce here—really captures the sublime beauty of Hauer's intricately woven, elegantly looping forms.
