Vases - 250 state-of-the-art designs (Hardcover): Agata Toromanoff Vases - 250 state-of-the-art designs (Hardcover)

Vase design is blooming. As the vase has become one of the most universal home accessories, contemporary designers are pushing the boundaries, making vases that are not only functional, beautiful objects, but also works of art and conceptual statements. The history of design includes many significant examples of state-of-the-art vases, but the scope and quality of those that we can admire today are unprecedented. From Ted Muehling's sleek, gilded `Goose Egg' to Glithero's botanical cyanotypes on ceramic and Joogii Design's colour-shifting prisms covered in dichroic film, there are no limits to what contemporary designers can make out of what is fundamentally a container for holding flowers. This book includes important mid-century and late 20th-century vases by acclaimed artists, but primarily focuses on the 21st-century scene, with a wide international selection of emerging designers from the younger generation. Inspired by the organic world, architectural elements, artworks or geometric rules, all these designers translate their original visions into a variety of forms, blurring the lines between design, sculpture and architecture. The vases featured in this book are contemporary works of art, worthy of inclusion in museum collections - as many already are.

Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames are among the most important designers of the 20th century, and the story of the Eames Office is that of visual and material culture in the post-war, modern period. The World of Charles and Ray Eames charts the history of their inspiring and prolific world and brings together key works and ideas explored at the Eames Office throughout its extraordinary history. This definitive monograph explores the era-defining work of the Eames Office, a `laboratory' active for over four decades, where the Eameses and their collaborators produced a vast array of pioneering and influential projects - from architecture, furniture and product design to film, photography, multi-media installation and exhibitions, as well as new models for arts education. Themes include `The Eames Office: Life in Work', `At Home with the Eameses', `Information Machines', `The Seeing Eye', `Office USA: Communicating "America" at Home and Abroad', and `The Art of Living'. Alongside newly commissioned texts by leading design experts, The World of Charles and Ray Eames will include contemporaneous reviews and magazine articles, writings by Charles and Ray Eames themselves, personal correspondence and a comprehensive reference section.

Origins: The Creative Spark Behind Japan's Best Product Designs (Hardcover): Masashi Kuma, Shu Hagiwara Origins: The Creative Spark Behind Japan's Best Product Designs (Hardcover)
Masashi Kuma, Shu Hagiwara
R578 R431 Discovery Miles 4 310 Save R147 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Japan has a long history of combining the newest technology with clever, striking and intricate design, the result of the traditional aesthetic of monozukuri, or "the art of making things." The unique style and efficiency of Japan's best products have earned the respect of industrial designers and consumers world-wide.
For this book, Shu Hagiwara has selected forty Japanese-designed products that have had a profound impact on the post-World War II period, and looks at the original ideas that sparked the creation of these products. What were the engineers thinking when they designed the Honda Super Cub--what many consider to be the best motorcycle of all time? What flight of imagination led to Sori Yanagi's spectacular Butterfly Stool, which now is part of New York's MOMA collection? What traditional craft inspired Isamu Noguchi's lantern, Akari?
From Hagiwara's text, we learn much about these elegant, witty and beautiful designs, as well as the process from inception to product. The stunning photographs of the celebrated Masashi Kuma give further expression to these ideas.
Forty products--some familiar, some not. Forty ideas--some contemporary, some traditional. Forty designs--all intriguing, all inspirational, all a fascinating part of contemporary life in Japan.

This remarkable and beautiful book brings together a collection of decorated papers dating from the 16th to the 20th century. They were produced for a wide variety of uses: as wrappers and endpapers for books, as the backing for playing cards, and even as linings for chests and cases. Some decorated papers were used as humble pictures for display in churches and the home; some were sold as souvenirs to pilgrims; and others were used merely as wrappings for foodstuffs such as gingerbread and chocolate. What unites all the papers in the book is the richness of their ornamentation and the thin, flexible characteristics of the original sheets. They are all further united by having been collected by Olga Hirsch (1889-1968), a trained bookbinder who left her collection of some 3,500 papers to the British Library, where they remain one of the largest and most diverse collections of decorated papers in the world. This anthology brings together some of the most exquisite examples. It will delight and inspire designers, bibliophiles and anyone with a love of pattern and decoration.

A fully updated and expanded edition of Don Norman's classic and influential work, which pioneered the application of cognitive science to design. Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we try to figure out the shower control in a hotel or attempt to navigate an unfamiliar television set or stove. When The Design of Everyday Things was published in 1988, cognitive scientist Don Norman provocatively proposed that the fault lies not in ourselves, but in design that ignores the needs and psychology of people. Fully revised to keep the timeless principles of psychology up to date with ever-changing new technologies, The Design of Everyday Things is a powerful appeal for good design, and a reminder of how-and why-some products satisfy while others only disappoint.
