2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 78 libraries worldwide
Plastic culture. The enduring lure of a material for over 60 years. Italian company Kartell, founded in 1949, is famous around the world for having invented the culture of plastic furniture and interior furnishings. Particularly since the plastic-loving era of the 1960s and 70s, Kartell has become an enduring household name; from the iconic designs of Joe Columbo in the 1960s to more recent hits such as Philippe Starck's "Ghost Chairs" or Ron Arad's "Book Worms" shelves, Kartell has consistently chosen to work with the world's most talented designers while reinventing plastic as a quality material for the new age. This survey covers the entire history of the company decade by decade, exploring all aspects of its evolution as well as the social and technological qualities of Kartell products. Also included are interviews with "Mr Plastic" Claudio Luti, director of Kartell for more than 20 years and architect of the new boom, historians, and, star designers, as well as those involved in the production process, illuminating every step from the idea to the finished product
Le Kitsch : un catalogue raisonné du mauvais goût by Gillo Dorfles( Book )
8 editions published between 1968 and 1978 in French and held by 76 libraries worldwide
Très bon ouvrage d'ensemble sur le sujet. Une anthologie du kitsch dans ses manifestations variées: les monuments, les transpositions, le tourisme, la publicité, le cinématographe, la bondieuserie, la pornographie, le design et l'architecture, le kitsch traditionnel, etc. Au début, près de cent pages sont consacrées à l'analyse et au problème du kitsch. L'auteur restreint cette manifestation "esthétique" à l'époque contemporaine, depuis le dernier quart du 19e siècle plus particulièrement. La présentation est très soignée et les illustrations sont nombreuses, en noir et en couleurs. Le texte, de très bonne qualité, occupe plus de place que l'illustration. Les jugements de l'auteur sont sévères pour cette forme d'art et ils pourraient être tempérés par l'étude sociologique d'Abraham Moles: ##Le Kitsch## (Mame, 1971), repris en 1977 sous le titre: ##Psychologie du kitsch##
