L'art du design by Bruno Munari ( Book )
47 editions published between 1966 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dans cet ouvrage, Bruno Munari, mondialement connu pour la vivacité et la légèreté de ses créations, détruit le mythe de l'artiste vedette et lui substitue le personnage du designer. Ce recueil de textes brefs, accompagnés de croquis et d'illustrations, présente les diverses spécialisations du design : design visuel, design industriel, design graphique et design de recherche. Avec sa plume caustique, l'auteur se livre à des critiques impitoyables de la création de son époque : trop statique et trop complexe. 0Il appelle de ses voeux des formes en mouvement, en transformation et prône la simplicité et l'équilibre, se réclamant ainsi de l'esthétique asiatique. Véritable précurseur dans son domaine, Bruno Munari annonce, dans ces textes regroupés dans les années 1960, les évolutions auxquelles on peut assister aujourd'hui"--Page 4 of cover
