Item description for Alessandro Mendini: Pulviscoli (Italian Edition) by Alessandro Mendini...

Among distinguished contemporary designers, Alessandro Mendini is perhaps most deserving of the overused title of Renaissance man. Painter, writer, architect, theorist, designer: His work in all these fields has influenced generations of other artists and craftsmen and delighted even those who don't know his name but have entered his spaces (like his stores for Alessi and Swatch), sipped from his espresso cups, and rested in his chairs. Through his work as a founder of Studio Alchimia in 1979 and editor of the magazines Casabella, Modo, and domus, Mendini has fought the strictures of modernism and championed the expressive value of decoration, which is the foundation for the development of his designs. This book offers a window into Mendini's working methods by presenting some 2,000 of his introductory designs, sketches, and texts that would eventually be realized as objects and buildings. This one-of-a-kind archive is both an important contribution to the history of design for scholars and students and a source of inspiration for designers and artists. Edited by Silvana Annicchiarico. Hardcover, 6 x 6 in./488 pgs / 2382 color.

Reviews - What do customers think about Alessandro Mendini: Pulviscoli (Italian Edition)?

Exquisite!  Mar 5, 2010
[This is NOT a review of a paperback book. This is a review of "Alessandro Mendini: Pulviscoli".]

This is 6.5 x 6.5 inches and contains page after page of his drawings, typically shown six per page on a beautiful gold background. His drawings are in color. To see the drawings that have been actualized is wonderful, which I assume most have been.

I will point out that this book is NOT related to the paperback that this site has linked as being another format of the same book and which was published in 1991; I also have that book as well and they are totally different from each other. this site has chosen not to disconnect these two different books.
