Rare third 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

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!
