Dekorative Turen: Einzelanfertigungen U. Sonderkonstruktionen In Metall; Glas U. Holz (German Edition) Gretl Hoffmann

S&H $5.00

Every door is at once a boundary; shutting off one area from another; and also a bond between the inside and the outside. Thoroughout the ages entrance doors to buildings have always had to be exceptionally robust. Batten construction conferred on them the necessary strength; but it also provided interesting scope for decoration. Signs and symbols already appeared centuries ago to furnish an indication of what lay behind the door. Ornamentation of doors in modern times is a special feature of church architecture. In the realm of the sacred; the door has a special roleas a threshold to the world beyond. In the secular field too however; the plain; flush door or the single metal-glass system are giving way to livelier and more original designs. Individually created doors are increasingly found beside the anonymous factory product. Now we are beginning to experiment with the structure and aesthetic appearance of interior doors in buildings as well. This book is filled with black and white and color photographs of door systems. Many styles and mediums are represented. Captions are in German and English.
