Durant ces 50 dernières années, une grande partie d'objets artistiques, ceux qui créent des sensations et des désirs, sont venus d'Italie. C'est tout d'abord Peter Greeneway et Italo Rota, dans un dialogue entre baroque et futurisme qui ont proposé un musée/installation de l'ère de l'information visuelle. Conjuguant l'élégance avec la jubilation et l'exubérance, ils ont donné vie à un volume et à une exposition auto-réflexive, capable de faire voir la signification des objets du design dans l'ambiance originale de leur projet.

Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti (18911979) was the creator of a multifaceted oeuvre. Starting off with ceramics and majolika works at the First International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Monza, he moved on to furniture and interior design and built structures of all kinds, from small residential dwellings to high rise buildings, schools, and office blocks. One of his great interests was the theme of the home, for which he continually sought to find new solutions. Ponti colorful, carefree, elegant spaces were designed to inspire optimism in their occupants. The founder and nearly lifelong editor of domus magazine never stopped developing and reinventing his style. This book provides an introduction to Ponti creative process and gives an overview of the various phases of his career.

"Two introductory essays trace the development of Italian art glass within the context of European glassmaking as a whole and examine the intimate world of glass manufacturing on Murano, with its unique combination of tradition and innovation. The superb color plates reproduce work by all the major designers and manufacturers. Italian art glass is not synonymous with Murano, however, and a notable feature of the book is the marvelous work produced in Milan by Erwin Burger and the firm Fontana Arte."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
