Item description for Italian Lighting Design 1945-2000 by Alberto Bassi...

Following World War II, Italian industrial designers began to earn worldwide acclaim for their lamp and lighting designs; since then the country has produced landmark models that have become classics of modern and contemporary design, such as lamps by the Castiglioni brothers and Artemide. This richly illustrated book documents the evolution of Italian lamp and lighting design from 1945 to the end of the twentieth century. The book reproduces more than 300 archival and new photographs, original advertisements, product displays, and installations of lights and lighting.

The volume is the second in a new series, inaugurated by ABC: Twentieth-Century Graphic Design, aimed not just at a traditional readership of architects but also at people working in the field of graphics and students at design schools.

Reviews - What do customers think about Italian Lighting Design 1945-2000?

Small But Powerful  Jul 1, 2008
When I first got my copy I was a little dismayed that almost all the photos are black & white and a very quick skim of the text left me with the impression that this would be a dry, technical experience. Once I started really reading and studying the images that impression changed fast. This is a wonderful overview of postwar Italian lighting, overflowing with dazzling examples of Italian design genius. These pieces are so purely beautiful, the lack of color is actually an asset. The text is interesting and very informative, especially if (like me) you don't know too terribly much about the subject before diving in.
