Domus 1960s

50.00

Founded in 1928 as a “living diary” by the great Milanese architect and designer Gio Pontidomus has been hailed as the world’s most influential architecture and design journal. With style and rigor, it has reported on the major themes and stylistic movements in industrial, interior, product, and structural design.

This fresh reprint of domus’ 1950s coverage brings together the most important features from an era of post-war optimism. As memories of conflict receded, architecture and design sought new forms, materials, and applicationsas well as increasing international dialogue.

Highlights include Le Corbusier’s design of the United Nations Building in New-York; the Case study house of Charles and Ray Eames; Richard Neutra in California and Oscar Niemeyer in Brazil, office machines by Olivetti, furniture by Ray and Charles Eames, ceramics and lights by Ettore Sottsass, and the Herman Miller Showroom by Alexander Girard in San Francisco.
