Decoration : Tradition et Renouveau
Collection Connaissance des Arts

First printing of one of the heaviest hitters of Interior Design books, the enormous, lavishly illustrated “Decoration : Tradition et Renouveau” (Collection Connaissance des Arts) published in 1973 is without a doubt one of the most collectable of 1970’s design books.

This huge, prestigious, cloth-bound volume travels through some of the world’s most incredible domestic interiors of the period, including those of major architects, interior designers, fashion designers, art and antiquities collectors, and more, showcasing objets d’art, historical artifacts and furniture (from Pablo Picasso, Mies van der Rohe, Lucio Fontana, Nicola L, Cesar, Jean Dubuffet, Arman, Gae Aulenti, Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Enzo Mari, Pierre Paulin, Afra + Tobia Scarpa, Charles Eames, Joe Columbo, Verner Panton, Bruno Munari Afra Scarpa, Mario Bellini, Tom Wesselman, Sonia Delaunay, Man Ray) adorning decorated interiors ranging from “Tradition” (“a formula that allows one to integrate older items, furniture and artwork in a contemporary context”); “le Renouveau” (contemporary interiors of the 1970’s and “a section dedicated to design of the time offering a selection of the finest furniture, objects and accessories created by top designers”); and “l’Avant-garde” (displaying some of the most experimental, idiosyncratic, and forward-thinking interiors that bring together modern materiality, pop art and space design to create inspired interior living architectural spaces).
“How to reconcile antique furniture and contemporary structures? Can we adapt modern furniture within a traditionally inspired framework? This book, illustrated with beautiful photographs, mostly in color, reproducing the finest achievements of the great contemporary designers, responds to these questions.”
All texts in French.

A must-have for the interior design lover.

GI (GLOBAL INTERIOR) #4
Southern Europe, 1972

Rare fourth issue from 1972 (complete with original issue printed slip-case) of this now classic 1970’s architectural series, the great GI (Global Interior) from Tokyo, Japan.

One of the finest interior architecture journal series ever published, GI “The Series of Global Interior” came from the producers of the highly esteemed GA (Global Architecture), GA Document, GA Houses, etc. architectural publications.

GI was produced throughout the 1970’s in a total of ten volumes. Each large volume highlighted a selection of architectural projects by renowned international architects, some volumes focusing on a specific architect entirely, and highlighted their work for houses and domestic spaces.

Beautiful architectural photography of house interiors, exteriors and room details of living spaces, along with texts (mostly in Japanese) and floor-plans/elevation drawings make up the profiles on each featured building or environment. The visual generosity of these handsomely designed and printed journals (each more a book than a magazine) make them a treasure for any architecture or interior design enthusiast or collector.

Edited and Presented by Yukio Futagawa
