Hans Hollein


The great Hans Hollein Extra Edition of a+u (Architecture and Urbanism) published in Tokyo in 1985 and long out of print.

This publication makes for probably the most generous monograph ever published on Hans Hollein, Austrian architect and designer and key figure of postmodern architecture (30 March 1934 – 24 April 2014).

Lavishly illustrated with photography, sketches and plan drawings across 260 pages, this dense book profiles his realised architectural buildings (including the incredible Retti Candle Shop, Austrian Travel Agencies, Schullin Jewelry Shops, Perchtoldsdorf Town Hall, Munincipal Museum Abteiberg Monchengladbach, amongst many more); miscellaneous realised works (including his many furniture and object designs for Herman Miller, Memphis, Poltronova, Alessi, Wittmann) and interiors, exhibition and stage designs (for the Milan Triennale, Venice Biennale and many more); his unrealised projects (all visualised through plans and photography of Hollein’s architectural models), and accompanied by essays from Kenneth Frampton and Joseph Rykwert, an introduction, a biography and a list of works.

A must for anyone interested in the breadth of this great designer’s work through the 1960s-1980s.

* Condition: Very Good (tight, clean copy throughout, light wear from age, some rubbing to spine/covers overall very good) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

Memphis
Research, Experiences, Results, Failures and Successes of New Design


First 1984 printing of the US hardcover edition of “MEMPHIS: Research, Experiences, Results, Failures and Successes of New Design”, by Barbara Radice – arguably the greatest reference book on the work of the Italian Design group MEMPHIS. In original dust-jacket.

Written by Radice, a founding member of the Memphis group (and author of “Ettore Sottsass: A Critical Biography”), and documenting in stunning photography and reproduction the vast array of design work that this group produced across furniture, lighting, interiors, architecture, textiles, glassware, etc., this really feels like THE official Memphis book, embodying their spirit and design aesthetic in book form.

Founded in 1981, the international group of architects and designers, Memphis, shook the design world to its foundations. Based in Italy and led by Ettore Sottsass, it overturned and re-shaped the pre-suppositions on which the production of so-called Modern Design is based. It became the almost mythical symbol of the New Design. Laughing out loud at our culture and at itself, Memphis pulled out all stops when it came to colour, pattern, decoration and ornamentation. It sets out to contribute to the continuing dialogue on pop culture, the avant-garde and design.

This book features the work of Ettore Sottsass, George Sowden, Masanori Umeda, Shiro Kuramata, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Peter Shire, Michele de Lucchi, Matteo Thun, Alessandro Mendini, Andrea Branzi, Gerard Taylor, Michael Graves, Aldo Cibic, George James Sowden, Arquitectonica, Hans Hollein, Marco Zanini, Javier Mariscal, Thomas Bley, Martine Bedin, etc.

Contents are: Introduction; Memphis; Plastic Laminate; Materials; Decoration; Color; The Memphis Idea; The Design; Memphis and Fashion.

Highly recommended.

* Condition: Very Good-Fine (tight, clean copy in dust jacket protected under plastic) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
