Paul László, (Paul Laszlo) industrial designer, A.S.I.D., Beverly Hills, California
by Paul László; Paul Laszlo; Ed Rees
(Beverly Hills): No Publisher, 1958. Hardcover. Near Fine. Apparently published in Beverly Hills privately in 1958, 87 unnumbered pages, illustrated heavily, some in color. Square quarto with cream pebbled faux leather spine and glossy pictorial boards. RARE on the market or at auction but OCLC lists at least 25 copies in insttutions (one needs to put the accents in Laszlo's name to get the OCLC record). Ed Rees contributes a short introduction. Near fine, no jacket (none was probably issued). The Jewish Hungarian-born architect and designer (1900-93) immigrated to USA and immediately bought a car and drove to Los Angeles from NYC and made that city his home. He was a colleague of George Nelson, Charles Eames and Isamu Noguchi when all of them worked for Herman Miller. He was 'notoriously intransigent' in his design practices and relationships, refusing to design for Elizabeth Taylor and Barbara Streisand because of disagreements. He designed many casinos etc. for Howard Hughes. Interesting fellow.
