Item description for The Official Point of View: Milano Furniture Fair 2003 by Giulia Ber Tacchini, Paolo Calcagni, Lucio Luzo Lazzara & Riccardo Rinetti...
The incomparable Milan Furniture Fair (a.k.a. Salone Internazionale del Mobile) is held each spring in, yes, Milan. Covering a total area of 462,000 square meters and hosting 1,900 exhibitors, including 240 from countries outside of Italy, the Fair is widely considered the best and biggest show in the design calendar for the year. The Official Point of View is a volume dedicated to the Fair, the Satellite Fair, the off-Fair, and life in Milan during the week of the Fair. It offers not only an exhaustive photographic record of the event but also a new and original point of view on the exhibition--especially on any and all occurrences that have light as their central theme. In its dense, thorough recording of the state-of-the-art creativity and production on show at the Fair, The Official Point of View recognizes equal relevance in both institutionally-established companies and the most innovative trends from the newest schools of thought. It presents firms, products, and places in ironical, critical, and celebratory ways. Meant not only for designers, architects, and related professionals, but also for anyone curious about the sociological and aesthetic consequences of design, The Official Point of View is both an extraordinary record and an inspirational and practical tool. This edition includes a CD-Rom of panoramic sequences of representative installations and preparations, and also highlights the websites of various participating companies and designers. An appendix includes detailed contact information for manufacturing companies, designers, architects, showrooms, and more.
