Brutalist Furniture and Design (America, Europe (ca. 1950s - 1970s))
The term Brutalism — which derives from the French word brut, meaning “raw” — was coined to describe an architectural style that emerged in the 1950s featuring monumental buildings, usually made of unornamented concrete, whose design was meant to project an air of strength and solidity. Le Corbusier essentially created the Brutalist style; its best-known iterations in the United States are the Marcel Breuer-designed Whitney Museum of American Art and Paul Rudolph‘s Yale Art and Architecture Building.
