domus 1960s, Hardback Book

Description

Founded in 1928 as a "living diary" by the great Milanese architect and designer Gio Ponti, domus has been hailed as the world's most influential architecture and design journal.

With both style and rigor, it has offered consistent coverage of major themes and stylistic movements in product, structure, interior, and industrial design.In this fresh reprint of all 1960s issues, the magazine documents the daring, practical, and beautiful projects of a decade of futuristic thrill and booming pop culture.

Synthetics and plastics hit the stage, leading to radical new design, while conventional notions of elegance give way to fresh exploratory forms.For work to be featured in the magazine it had to offer function, spatial clarity, intellectual persuasion, relevant originality, and/or grace.

Those projects and practitioners that made the grade include the Anti and Radical Design movements, Ray and Charles Eames, Gae Aulenti, Kenzo Tange, Verner Panton, Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Ettore Sottsass, Carlo Scarpa, Angelo Mangiarotti, Cesare Maria Casati, and Eero Saarinen.domus distilledSeven volumes spanning 1928 to 1999Over 6,000 pages featuring influential projects by the most important designers and architectsOriginal layouts and all covers, with captions providing navigation and contextNew introductory essays by renowned architects and designersEach edition comes with an appendix featuring texts translated into English, many of which were previously only available in ItalianA comprehensive index in each volume listing both designers' and manufacturers' names
