Item description for Gunter Kupetz: Industrial Design by Andrej Kupetz...

"Gnter Kupetz gehrt zu den Groen seiner Profession" (Volker Fischer)

In seiner beruflichen Laufbahn reflektiert Kupetz (*1925) wie kaum ein anderer Gestalter seiner Zeit die Grnderstimmung des deutschenDesigns in den 50er und 60er Jahren.

Kupetz hat weit ber 1000 Produkte entworfen: Metallwaren, Glas, Schmuck, Verpackungen, Mbel, Investitionsgter, Maschinen. Einige seiner Entwrfe, wie die Mineralwasserflasche fr die deutsche Brunnengesellschaft, sind millionenfache Bestseller geworden, die bis heute im Einsatz sind. Seine Kreationen fr WMF undAEG stellten auf ihrem Gebiet echte Designinnovationen dar. Viele seiner Entwrfe erscheinen heute noch aktuell dank ihrer herausragenden formalen Eigenschaften.

Das Buch stellt erstmals seine Arbeit im Zusammenhang darund veranschaulicht, wie Kupetz die Gestaltung anonymer Massenprodukte als eine gesellschaftliche Aufgabe verstanden hat, die mit der hchstmglichen Qualitt gelst werden muss.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gunter Kupetz: Industrial Design?

Inspiring and Educational  Sep 14, 2006
As a professional Industrial Designer and a huge fan of the Bauhaus I stopped into the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin earlier this year during a vacation. I was surprised to see an exhibit honoring the work of Gunter Kupetz who I had never previously known through education or research. I really enjoyed the exhibit which was well presented however I was left wanting to know more about the man and his contributions. When I returned to the United States I looked for a book that would satisfy my thirst to know more. None were really available that didn't have a specific focus on one of Gunter's works such as the famous "Water Bottle". Then just a few months later this book was published and I ordered it immediately.

Once I received it I was not able to put it down for hours. It draws you in right from the forward which has some really interesting personal perspectives from Gunter on ID at various points throughout his career. Points that I think could stand to be reinforced in design schools today. Then the book dives right into his work in metals, glass and plastic while giving you a fairly comprehensive biography along the way. There are loads of images and descriptions throughout. Even the glossary has a wealth of info which was unexpected. Bonuses include a chronicle of German design history that cross references to Gunter's personal history and short bios on contributors.

Even the book design from a typography and graphic arts perspective is done well. It's a dual German/English layout that is creativly done for an easy read. I could go on and on but there is just too much that's good about this book to write it here.

On that note I suggest you purchase a copy if you are a student of Industrial Design. You will not be disappointed! Few books on ID are done this well at this cost.
