Fujiwo Ishimoto
Matkalla / Resan / On the Road


Published on the occasion of textile and ceramic designer Fujiwo Ishimoto’s exhibition On the Road at the Amos Anderson Art Museum, Helsinki, 23 August – 7 October 2001.

Ishimoto moved to Finland from Japan in 1970 and has lived there ever since. He first worked for the company Decembre, set up by Ristomatti Ratia, son of Marimekko’s founders Armi and Viljo Ratia. Ishimoto switched over to Marimekko in 1974. His highly personal style gave Marimekko a boost during the 1970s and 1980s with more mature and abstract designs than the playful 1960s styles which first had made Marimekko famous. Inspired by traditional Asian art and culture but also by Finnish traditions and nature, Ishimoto has continued to reinvent himself.
In total, he has made over 300 designs for Marimekko. Besides his work for Marimekko, he also creates unique ceramic works and was recently the subject of a large retrospective exhibition in Helsinki, of which this (now very rare) book is the accompanying publication. It is the most in-depth look at the work of Fujiwo Ishimoto to date.

The International Design Yearbook 1985/86
Robert A.M. Stern (Ed.)



Edited by Robert A.M. Stern, one of the world’s leading exponents of the Post-Modern movement, “The International Design Yearbook 1985/86” was “the first volume of an important annual review of domestic design in an international context. It shows the best, the most characteristic and the most exciting recent designs in furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles, glass and metalware. It illustrates the work not only of such leading figures as Rossi, Hollein, Venturi, Sottsass and Castiglioni, but of hundreds of other contemporary designers around the world, whose work is notable for its topicality and promise, or for its aesthetic or functional excellence.”

As well as contemporary design of the mid 1980’s, the annual “deals with the reproduction of classic designs by such masters as Eileen Gray, Hoffman, Mackintosh, Rietveld and Le Corbusier.” The annual also functioned as a guidebook to the featured designers and the respective companies, manufacturers and retailers of their designs. Biographies for all those designers featured are included, plus texts throughout.

This large book is richly illustrated with wonderful examples of the featured designers in their many forms via 520 illustrations, 382 in colour. Many works rarely (some possibly never) seen documented in any other book.

Includes the work of: Verner Panton, Nathalie du Pasquier, Charlotte Perriand, Paolo Piva, Andrée Putman, Dieter Rams, Gerrit Rietveld, Aldo Rossi, Stanley Tigerman, Brian Faucheux, Jay Stanger, Yrjo Kukkapuro, Hans Gunnarsson, Studio Alchimia, Gabrielle Regondi, John Smith, Alberto Salvati and Ambrogio Tresoldi, Paolo Deganello, Alessio Sarri, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Matteo Thun, Pierre Jeanneret, Memphis, Giuseppe Terragni, Robert George Sowden, SITE, Afra Scarpa, Tobia Scarpa, Robert Venturi, Ugo La Pietra, Le Corbusier, Ettore Sottsass, Adolf Loos, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Richard Meier, Alessando Mendini, Fujiwo Ishimoto, Hans Hollein, Josef Hoffmann, William Morris, Frank D. Gehry, Robert A.M. Stern, Eileen Gray, Michael Graves, Michele De Lucchi, Joe Colombo, Achille Castiglioni, Mario Bellini, Gae Aulenti, Hans Ansems, Ron Arad, Emilio Ambasz, Alver Aalto, Daniel Weil, Marco Zanini, to name but a few!
