Book Description

It is revealed in the document titled Louise Brigham and the Early History of Sustainable Furniture Design (PDF) how Brigham carved out a unique career for herself that included working in the American and European settlement movements, publishing a book of box furniture designs, running carpentry workshops in New York, and founding a company that provided some of the earliest ready-to-assemble furniture in the United States.

The best resource available on the topic is found in the ebook titled “Louise Brigham and the Early History of Sustainable Furniture Design.” A mostly unknown activist and teacher by the name of Louise Brigham became a pioneer in the field of environmentally conscious furniture design during the Progressive Era, which was a time when the field of design was virtually solely led by men. She devised a clever method for constructing “box furniture” out of recycled materials that was both inexpensive and strong. Her goal was to make high-quality design accessible to the urban working class. As Antoinette LaFarge demonstrated, Brigham forged a unique career for herself that included working in the American and European settlement movements, publishing a book of box furniture design, running carpentry workshops in New York, and founding a company that provided some of the earliest ready-to-assemble furniture in the United States. LaFarge also demonstrated that Brigham was a pioneer in the field of box furniture design. Her work was a resounding indictment of the waste produced by capitalism and a declaration of new ideals in design—values that are at the basis of today’s open and green design movements. Her work had a profound impact.

Review

 

“A life that is told with an attention on historical settings, a knowledge of the cleverness of Brigham’s design, and a great lot of narrative flare. It is a fascinating life. The dynamic nature of this time period in terms of progressive design is reflected in Brigham’s modular, upcycled furniture created from cast-off boxes in the early 20th century. This furniture was built in the early 20th century and illustrates the intimate relationship between a social mission and design. Lecturer of Critical and Historical Studies at Kingston University in the United Kingdom, Stephen Knott
