Summary

·An indispensable compendium on designers to be discovered·A wonderful atlas of objects with a rich portfolio·In addition to being an educational instrument for students, the series will address an audience of both specialists and non-specialists, journalists or anyone wishing to collect useful information for the purpose of understanding design todayDuring his brief but prolific career, Cesare "Joe" Colombo became one of the most inventive figures in contemporary Italian design. His futuristic designs included 'micro-living-worlds'; multi-functional objects that aimed to save space and time and accommodate the needs of modern living spaces. These objects led to his Visiona, the 'habitat for the future' that reinvented seating, storage, lighting and other furnishings that reflected his emphasis on change and the possibilities offered by new technologies. All his items were affordably priced and designed for large-scale production and consumption, making him a major player in the evolution of the iconic 'sixties style' that is still prevalent in interior design trends today.Published in the same style as the successful Minimum Architects series, the Minimum Designers series includes books about the major figures in the field of design, creators of objects that have become a part of our daily lives. The lamp on our desk, the chair we are sitting on, or the glasses we are wearing'¬ ;all have a genius behind to be discovered.These volumes will introduce in a practical manner the personalities and the works of the world's major designers by way of a historical-critical introduction to the work and life of each individual designer. An accurate selection of the designer's most famous objects arranged in chronological order and a critique of his or her work summarizing the most significant reviews published in magazines and newspapers will complete the subject.
