Item description for Minimalist Design by Lucinda Byatt Franco Bertoni...
Minimalist is a term used by the media frequently, and often incorrectly, in a wide variety of contexts these days. In the opening chapters Franco Bertoni traces the origins and development of minimalism: from religious asceticism, through 18th century rationalism to the various current schools and modes. This introduction provides a necessary and well-founded guide to the concept of simplicity, of minimalism in design, photography, theatre, music and literature. 22 renowned designers such as Tadao Ando, Giorgio Armani, Michael Gabellini, Konstantin Grcic, Donald Judd, Calvin Klein, Issey Miyake, Jean Nouvel, Claudio Silvestrini, Eduardo Souto de Moura and Hannes Wettstein are portrayed in the main section, each with a concise biography, bibliography and particulars of their work.
