Item description for Custom Built by Silvana Annicchiarico...

What is it that makes Italian design so attractive, so inventive, so witty? Mama mia. Maybe the answer is to be found in Custom Built, a critically reflective look at unique and handcrafted objects by succeeding generations of Italian designers. Beginning in the 1930s and moving towards the present, this volume peers into the archeology of 20th-century Italian design, uncovering unique pieces created before the spread of industrial furniture culture and the mass-produced object, as well as prototypes who stand in ironic defiance of the factory-made objects they may have spawned. Included are designs by such luminaries as Franco Albini, Mario Asnago & Claudio Vender, Melchiorre Bega, Piero Bottoni, Luigi Caccia, Dominioni, Pietro Chiesa, Luigi Figini & Gino Pollini, Ignazio Gardella, Piero Lingeri, Giuseppe Pagano, Gio Ponti, Piero Portaluppi, Gustavo Pulitzer, Guglielmo Ulrich and Luigi Vietti.

Edited by Silvana Annicchiarico and Arturo Dell'Acqua Bellavitis.
