Underground Interiors
Decorating for Alternate Life Styles (Oberto Gili, Norma Skurka Eds.)

At the start of the 1970’s, at the very beginning of renowned photographer Oberto Gili’s professional career (Architectural Digest, Vogue, House & Garden, Town & Country), he moved to Milan to work for L’Esperto, a publishing company…
“… to shoot and produce a book that was to be called ‘Crazy, Mad, Outrageous Interiors’.  I traveled around the world for a year working on this book. L’Esperto dropped the project, but Norma Skurka, The New York Times interiors editor those days, took over and Quadrangle Books published the book in 1972.  It was called ‘Underground Interiors’.”
– Oberto Gili

Arthur C. Danto

What is a chair? More than 300 designers, architects, and furniture makers from around the world attempted to answer that question when they submitted chairs to an exhibition sponsored by The Architectural League of New York in 1986. Made from all manners of materials–steel, fabric, wood, plastic, aluminum, fiberglass–and running from serious solitary utilitarian seats to whimsical models, the range and variety of the designer’s answers, all 397 of them illustrated here, are truly stunning.

Opening with American critic and philosopher Arthur C. Danto’s essay “The Seat of the Sole”, this handsomely designed volume, printed and bound in Japan, features an incredible photographic survey of eclectic chairs from the early 1980s.  Amongst them appears Mario Bellini, Enzo Mari, Phillipe Starck, Vignelli designs, Michael Graves, Herman Miller, Ward Bennett, Stomu Miyazaki, Alan Buchsbaum, Knoll, Michele De Lucchi, Marco Zanini, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, Emilio Ambasz, Kazuo Kawasaki, Richard Meier, Herbert and Jutta Ohl, Simon Desanta, Vitra Seating, Shigeru Uchida, Giancarlo Piretti, Thonet Industries,  Memphis Milano, Hartmut Lohmeyer, to name but a few.
