"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

Sottsass by Ettore Sottsass( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take a glimpse inside the archive of the founder of the Memphis Group and designer of the Olivetti Valentine typewriter in Ettore Sottsass, a lavishly illustrated monograph chronicling the life and works of the unparalleled Italian designer and architect. A gorgeous object in itself, the unique design of the book allows it to either be read cover-to-cover as a narrative history, or by discipline, picking up the relative thread under each period, with multi-colored tabs to distinguish each sub-chapter. Packed with 800 beautiful images taken from the extensive Sottsass archives - many of which have never been published before - and including drawings and sketches from the designer's countless sketchbooks, the book also includes four short essays from experts in their fields, including Deyan Sudjic, director of London's Design Museum
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 171 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

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

9 editions published in 2006 in French and Multiple languages and held by 75 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)
Ettore Sottsass by Patrizia Ranzo( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 74 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

"The exhibition jointly curated by Andrea Branzi adn Kenya Hara tells the history of human desires as a fixed-form poem, comparing 100 tools and 100 verbs. It illustrates humankind's destiny to evolve not only intelligence, but at the same time stupdity, cruelty and cunning through its never ending relationship with tools, from the Stone Age to the present day"--Jacket
