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

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 68 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
No-stop city : Archizoom associati by Andrea Branzi( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"En 1969, conjointement à son travail expérimental dans le domaine du design, le groupe Archizoom entreprit une recherche sur la ville, l'environnement et la culture de masse, qui aboutit au projet "No-Stop City". Cet ouvrage présente pour la première fois cette œuvre, qui est l'apogée du mouvement radical italien. Regroupant l'ensemble des textes et des dessins, il nous dévoile cette " Ville sans fin " qui mêle objet, société de consommation triomphante et architecture. Une grille de lecture où la répétition d'un même ensemble central, un bâtiment ou un groupe d'objets, via un jeu de miroirs, compose un environnement catatonique, un supermarché sans limites, un futur à composer et désormais atteint. "No-Stop City" est une ville sans qualités, dans laquelle l'individu peut réaliser son habitat comme une activité créatrice, libérée et personnelle. Ce projet théorique fut d'abord publié dans la revue Casabella en 1970 sous le titre : " Ville chaîne de montage du social, idéologie et théorie de la métropole ". Il met en œuvre, comme le déclare Andrea Branzi, " l'idée de la disparition de l'architecture à l'intérieur de la métropole ". No-Stop City est une utopie critique, un modèle d'urbanisation globale, où le design est conçu comme l'outil conceptuel fondamental pour modifier les modes de vie et le territoire. Cette " Ville sans fin " présente la même organisation qu'une usine ou un supermarché. Elle propose un schéma répétitif aux centres multiples, structure neutre, égale et continue. No-Stop City se donne comme une sorte de parking aménagé de meubles habitables, utilisables selon les circonstances. Les espaces intérieurs, éclairés artificiellement et climatisés, permettent d'organiser de nouvelles typologies d'habitation ouvertes et continues, destinées à de nouvelles formes d'associations et de communautés. "Considérant l'architecture comme une catégorie intermédiaire d'organisation urbaine qu'il fallait dépasser, No-Stop City opère une liaison directe entre la métropole et les objets d'ameublement : la ville devient une succession de lits, de tables, de chaises et d'armoires, le mobilier domestique et le mobilier urbain coïncident totalement. Aux utopies qualitatives, nous répondons par la seule utopie possible : celle de la Quantité " (Andrea Branzi)

"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
