Product Description

MoMA Design Series: Italian Design (PB)

By Giampiero Bosoni

Engaging Italian industry and culture in a single-minded and spontaneous project of national image building, Italy's designers have produced a complete variety of forms—fashion, graphic arts, and product and set design—with a unique international resonance. This book explores Italian design of the last half-century, featuring the classic lines of the Vespa, Bruno Munari's deconstruction of the common fork, the nostalgic appeal of Italo Marchioni's ice cream cone, and the sleek minimalism of Alberto Meda's "Light Light Chair," among many other masterpieces. Includes 148 illustrations and an introduction by Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum.

In this series dedicated to industrial and graphic design, each volume offers an overview of a single country's design achievements and illustrates its particular design history, showcasing renowned architects and designers through exemplary works drawn from MoMA's collection. Each book features an introduction by Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum, and an illustrated essay by a distinguished design critic, accompanied by a visual timeline of significant events and a comprehensive bibliography.
