"The earliest work of Ettore Sottsass established the reputation of Italian design as the best in the world. His designs for such leading firms as Olivetti and Alessi and as the founding member of the Memphis design group paved the way for the numerous designers working today and continues to lead the field in new directions."--BOOK JACKET. "Collected here in this retrospective volume are Sottsass's projects from 1980 to the present. This prolific designer's work in all fields - architecture and interior, industrial, and graphic design - is presented here, from lamps and electronics to showrooms, the Nanon House in Belgium and the interior of the new Milan International Airport."--Jacket

Weak and diffuse modernity : the world of projects at the beginning of the 21st century by Andrea Branzi( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book proposes two goals: to analyze the innovations that the twenty-first century is introducing to the world of design, to the passage from the strong and concentrated modernity of the twentieth century to the weak and diffuse current one, and to investigate whether there is, in this passage, the possibility of imagining a future for non-figurative architecture." "This is a long essay comprising a decade of reflections and designs, in an attempt to reconcile conceptual reflections on architecture and the contemporary city, with a constant inclination towards a vision for the future. With this text, Andrea Branzi gives us a courageous act of faith and optimism towards an architecture that is still capable of listening to the city's heart, while at the same time giving never-before-seen answers for the future of living together."--BOOK JACKET

Ettore Sottsass by Patrizia Ranzo( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ettore Sottsass was an Italian architect and designer. His work included furniture, jewellery, glass, lighting and office machine design. His work was unique, much of it influenced by a desire to avoid corporate work, believing that to confine himself to the realms of mass-produced consumerist products would stifle his creativity. His design style shifted dramatically during his career, from the modernist typewriters and office furniture commissioned by Olivetti in the 60s to the vibrant and iconic pieces of furniture created for the collection from the Memphis Group, a group of architects and designers that he worked with in the 80s and 90s. Published in the same style as the successful Minimum Architects series, the Minimum Design series includes books about the major figures in the field of design, creators of objects that have become a part of our daily lives. The lamp on our desk, the chair we are sitting on or the glasses we are wearing have a genius behind to be discovered. These volumes will introduce in a practical manner the personalities and the works of the world's major designers by way of an historical-critical introduction to the work and life of each individual designer. An accurate selection of the designer's most famous objects arranged in chronological order and a critique of his or her work summarising the most significant reviews published in magazines and newspapers will complete the subject. -- Product Description
Fornasetti : [the complete universe] by Piero Fornasetti( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No-stop city : Archizoom associati by Andrea Branzi( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in French and Multiple languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1969, the Archizoom group, while carrying out an experimental work in the field of design, also undertook a research on environment, mass culture and the city, which led to the project No-Stop City. Gathering all the texts and drawings, this book reveals to us the "Endless City" intertwining architecture with objects and the triumphant consumer society, giving an interpretation where the repetition of a single central element, a building or a group of objects makes up, through a play of mirrors, a catatonic environment, a boundless supermarket, a now reached future to be composed. No-Stop City is a qualityless city in which the individual can achieve his own housing conditions as a creative, freed and personal activity. The theoretical project was first published in the review Casabella in 1970, under the title: "City, assembly line of social issues, ideology and theory of the metropolis". As Andrea Branzi puts it, this project implements "the idea of the fading away of architecture within metropolis". No-Stop City is a critical Utopia, a model of global urbanization where design is the essential conceptual instrument used in the mutation of living patterns and territories

"In this second phase the Triennale Design Museum aims to illustrate the contemporary Italian design scenario: something that affects everything from start-up companies to huge global concerns, starting with experimental research and reaching out to mass markets, using both artisanal materials and hi-tech. The true mission of the Triennale will be to achieve a broader concept of design which goes beyond fashion and food fads. Today design is a means, a tool through which to operate in the real world."--Back cover
