The Curious Mr. Sottsass: Photographing Design and Desire

Author
Ettore Sottsass
Publisher
Thames & Hudson
Sage of postmodernism, architect, furniture and product designer, and most widelyknown as the leading figure of the Memphis design studio in the eighties, Ettore Sottsass is one of the few postwar figures who could justly be referred to as a polymath. Among his many achievements and activities, his photography is one of the least known, yet it is certainly of unique importance in any understanding of the man, his work, and his visual vocabulary.Sottsass the photographer has created a prodigious body of work from which this personal selection is drawn. Recording his reactions to the detail and debris of the exotic and familiar, the images reveal an inquisitive sensibility finding a new way to describe the surrounding world, whether the location is India, China, Egypt, or New York.

The Work of Charles and Ray Eames : A Legacy of Invention

Author

Publisher
Abrams,Harry Inc.
Amazon.com review: Published on the occasion of a major international traveling exhibition organized by the U.S. Library of Congress and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany (holders of the two richest Eames collections in the world), this comprehensive volume is a testament to the Eameses' belief that good design could improve people's lives. From the 1940s to the 1970s, the prolific husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames designed furniture, buildings, exhibitions, and interiors, and made films. They are perhaps best known for the form-fitting chairs that were mass-produced using the same techniques the Eameses developed in their first apartment. Taking a multifaceted approach to their multifaceted careers, this comprehensive, clothbound volume with French folds includes a filmography, making clear the pair's profound influence on the visual vernacular of the 20th century.
