"1968 the newest project by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari's Toiletpaper in collaboration with the Deste Foundation in Athens, is an unorthodox and kaleidoscopic walk through the Dakis Joannou collection of radical design. A pivotal year for architecture, design and society, 1968 is a collection of dreams and nightmares, an inspiring compendium of colorful, ironic materials, objects, and bodies. Toiletpaper's interpretation of the collection results in mind blowing photographs that trap us in a complex system of references, crossing layers, three dimensional and real time collages. 1968 is a rainbow, the memory of a storm and the positive projection of a newborn sun: the history plus the future, masterly shown in the drawings by one of the primary characters of the radical design movement, Alessandro Mendini, who adds a vital contribution to Toiletpaper's visuals."--P.  of cover.

1968 is the newest project to emerge from collaboration between TOILETPAPER's Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari and the DESTE Foundation. In an unorthodox revisiting of Dakis Joannou's collection of Italian Radical Design, the irresistibly mischievous duo have merged the seductive lines of furniture and objects with the curves of modernday nymphs ca- vorting in Joannou's Athens home and on the wooded island of Kerkyra. These provocative photographs, infused with TOILETPAPER's antic spirit, give the reader access to the unparalleled Joannou Design Collection and at the same time champion the possibility that "the year that rocked the world" is alive and well.

An unprecedented survey of modern lighting design foregrounding its materials, innovators, and far-reaching influence Offering the first comprehensive history of lighting design from the 20th and 21st centuries, Electrifying Design: A Century of Lighting explores how lighting has been integral to the development of modern design both in terms of aesthetics and technological advances. This fascinating book outlines the key aspects of lighting as a unique and creative artistic discipline and examines themes such as different typologies, the quality of light, and the evolution of the bulb. A series of essays by Sarah Schleuning and Cindi Strauss showcase lighting designs from different time periods and geographic locations and feature the work of significant figures, including Poul Henningsen, Ingo Maurer, and Gino Sarfatti. With over 130 illustrations of functional and sometimes fantastical designs, a historical timeline, and comprehensive artist biographies, this handsome volume expands our understanding of an understudied but influential art form and demonstrates lighting's central role as both an expression of and a catalyst for innovations in modern and contemporary design.

A major new history of one of the seminal years in the postwar world, when rebellion and disaffection broke out on an extraordinary scale. The year 1968 saw an extraordinary range of protests across much of the western world. Some of these were genuinely revolutionary—around ten million French workers went on strike and the whole state teetered on the brink of collapse. Others were more easily contained, but had profound longer-term implications—terrorist groups, feminist collectives, gay rights activists could all trace important roots to 1968. 1968 is a striking and original attempt half a century later to show how these events, which in some ways still seem so current, stemmed from histories and societies which are in practice now extraordinarily remote from our own time. 1968 pursues the story into the 1970s to show both the ever more violent forms of radicalization that stemmed from 1968 and the brutal reaction that brought the era to an end.

Form Follows Idea examines the work and ideas of influential designers Ralph Ball and Maxine Naylor. Their reflections and propositions here provide a refreshing and provocative approach to design, touching on issues such as craftsmanship, modernism, and the role of nature and commercialism in design. Ball and Naylor's work explores ideas of space beyond the physical object. Their concern with cultural and social values is manifest in the form and (dis)function of their designs and appropiations of everyday objects, such as chairs, lights and shelving. Form Follows Idea features their approach to these objects through cultural, ecological and visual narratives. As such, this book provides a playful yet critical re-evaluation of familiar forms and typologies. The work in Form Follows Idea is further expanded upon here in an essay by Jeremy Myerson, Director of the Helen Hamlyn Research Centre at the Royal College of Art.

A sincere tribute to the world renowned phenomenon of Made in Italy on the occasion of two memorable dates: the fiftieth anniversary of the first Italian fashion show (Florence, 1951) and the fortieth anniversary of the International Furniture Show (Milan, 1961). The book, devoted to fifty years of Italian fashion and design, examines the complex mosaic of Made in Italy divided into different aspects and themes: -- Belvedere: an overview of the cultural and emotional relationship that exists between certain great foreign artists (including Luciano Fabro, Nam June Paik, Anish Kapoor, Joseph Kosuth, Panamarenko, Julian Schnabel) and Italy. -- Memory: a spectacular and historic interpretation of forty years of Italian life divided into four decades. Protagonists of the design and fashion worlds have been chosen for each decade: from Gio Ponti and Roberto Capucci (1951-1961) to Ettore Sottsass and Gianni Versace (1981-1991). -- Brokenhaus: an original mass of clothes and objects of fashion and design of the last 50 years, including Brionvega TV, Olivetti typewriters and Bialetti coffee-makers. -- Taste: another major "Italian-made" reality, gastronomy, is unconventionally interpreted by the designer Gaetano Pesce and by Andrea Pezzi, icon of teen-age pop culture. -- Allegory: a metaphor of the triumph of "Italian-made" goods to represent the decade 1991-2001, dedicated to all the leading figures in Italian design and fashion today, from Philippe Starck and Vico Magistretti to Gaetano Pesce, from Armani and Gucci to Dolce e Gabbana.
