Star Trek: Designing the Final Frontier


The hardcover book Star Trek: Designing the Final Frontier: How Midcentury Modernism Shaped Our View of the Future promises to delight fans of the cult TV show and of the design movement alike. There’s much to adore about the long-running series (from its social consciousness to its kitsch costumes) but it’s the set design—with mid-century modern furniture, objects and art—that authors and design experts Dan Chavkin and Brian McGuire explore here. Whether you’re an Eames enthusiast or a Nyota Uhura devotee (or both) this book provides plenty of treasures.
