Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) is one of the most influential and controversial reformers of the 20th century. He inspired artists such as Mondrian, Kandinsky and Beuys, created extraordinary furniture designs and shaped an architectural style that seems to be an anticipation of contemporary architecture. At the same time, Steiner advocated a holistic view of humanity that is omnipresent today - whether in organic cosmetics, biodynamic agriculture or the Waldorf schools founded by Steiner.
In this book, Steiner's work is presented in its entirety for the first time. Numerous well-founded essays explain the origins, context and impact of Steiner's work, supplemented by over 500 images, including new and historical photographs, architectural plans, notebook sketches and works of art. This study is completed by comparisons with contemporary design trends, from works by Olafur Eliasson to design objects by Konstantin Grcic to buildings by Herzog & de Meuron.
