Etat du livre : New
Language: English . Brand New Book. Every day we use objects designed to make our lives easier and more pleasant. Chairs, tables, lamps, and drinking glasses all form part of our domestic routine. Many of the most eye-catching examples of these objects were created by Italian industrial designers. But what happens when these designers turn their creative energy toward their own homes? Italian Designers at Home opens the doors to the homes of architects and designers and discovers their routines, idiosyncrasies, and original stories. Like Enzo Mari who cultivates bonsai trees, or Michele De Lucchi who carves miniature houses out of wood, or Dino Gavina who slept in a small cubic structure, in the center of a sixteenth-century room, because it reminded him of the cozy atmosphere of a passenger-train sleeping compartment. Every house has a unique story; every house is a surprise. Beautifully illustrated with 280 color photographs, Italian Designers at Home offers an unprecedented look at more than twenty homes styled by the hand of celebrated Italian design professionals including: Andrea Branzi, Cleto Munari, Alessandro Mendini, Dino Gavina, Mario Bellini, Riccardo Dalisi, Cini Boeri, Stefano Giovannoni, Enzo Mari, Michele De Lucchi, Bob Noorda, Vico Magistretti, and Ettore Sottsass.

Synopsis : Every day we make use of objects that someone designed to make our lives easier, more comfortable, more pleasant. Chairs, tables, lamps, household appliances, beds, vases, drinking glasses, all things that form part of our domestic routine. Many of the most eye-catching examples of these objects were created by Italian industrial designers. The international success of Italian design is a unique phenomenon and design observers are no doubt familiar with iconic objects like Vico Magistretti's Eclisse lamp for Artemide, Riccardo Dalisi's Neapolitan coffee maker for Alessi or the Alessandro Mendini's Poltrona Proust chair. But what happens when they turn their creative energy toward their own homes? How do these "maestros" of design live? Do they make use of the things that they designed for others? The authors of "Italian Designers at Home" (design journalist Alessandra Burigana, and architectural photographer Mario Ciampi) visited the homes of more than twenty renown Italian designers and asked them about their lifestyles, preferences, and career trajectories. They discovered the designers' routines, surprising passions, and original stories.One of them has a specially made wardrobe for his collection of shirts sewn by hand in London; another has a fear of emptiness and fills up his personal space with collections of all sorts. Another one has a beautiful kitchen but orders macrobiotic meals delivered to his home. One even sleeps in a small cubic structure, at the centre of a sixteenth-century living room, because it reminds him of the cozy atmosphere of a passenger-train sleeping compartment. Beautifully illustrated with 280 colour photographs, "Italian Designers at Home" offers a unprecedented look at more than twenty homes styled by the hand of celebrated Italian design professionals. The designers included: Anna Gili, Aldo Cibic, Andrea Branzi, Denis Santachiara, Cleto Munari, Alessandro Mendini, Dino Gavina, Mario Bellini, Ettore Sottsass, Massimo Scolari, Cini Boeri, Adelaide Acerbi Astori and Antonia Astori, Daniela Puppa, Enzo Mari, Marco Zanuso jr., Antonio Annichiarico, Fabio Novembre, Michele De Lucchi, Bob and Ornella Noorda, Vico Magistretti, Riccardo Dalisi, Martino Gamper, Stefano and Elisa Giovannoni.
