“Ever since the end of the Second World War, Italian style, design and decoration have maintained an unprecedented predominance in the Western World. It was in the early 1950s that a great surge of decorative talent welled up in Italy, and this resulted in the ‘Italian look’ in clothes and in homes – a new standard of chic inventiveness.

The Italian view of interior design has been most enterprisingly expressed in the magazine Casa Vogue, which was founded in 1968 and has consistently been one of the most admired publications of Condé Nast International.

This book, garnered from the many issues of Casa Vogue, has been written and produced under the guidance of  Isa Vercellonim who has been its editor ever since its inception. The choice of picture-stories is intended to reflect the unusual and distinctive diversity of the magazine – ranging from traditional decoration to the more advance examples of minimal design, most the most significant  of contemporary buildings to the spectacular reconstructions and reconversions of old palazzi and coachhouses, from the ‘post modern’ to the ‘anti-modern’ and any other ‘moderns’ that may have been advocated recently. Italian trends naturally provide the main focus, but Casa Vogue also includes developments in the United States, France, Switzerland – indeed, wherever unusual and meaningful designs are being created.”

Mies Van Der Rohe
Montage. Collage

Between 1910 and 1965, influenced by Dada, Constructivism and De Stijl, the German-American modernist polymath Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) created numerous montages and collages that endure as fascinating illustrations of the design principles of his architecture. However, these works–most of them large-format–are much more than sketches merely intended to assist his creative process as an architect. They are works of art in their own right that demonstrate van der Rohe’s compositional vision in its purest form. Abrupt changes of viewpoint, freedom from perspective, place and time, montages of found elements and a focus on mixed media places him in the same context as his contemporaries Kurt Schwitters, Theo van Doesburg, Hans Richter and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. This volume celebrates his lesser-known accomplishments in this medium.

Isamu Noguchi (November 17, 1904 – December 30, 1988) prominent Japanese American artist and landscape architect whose artistic career spanned six decades, from the 1920s onward. One of the greatest 20th-century sculptors, Noguchi is known for his sculpture and public works, creating innovative parks, plazas, playgrounds, fountains, gardens, and stage sets as well as sculpture of stone, metal, wood, and clay, and several mass-produced lamps and furniture pieces, some of which are still manufactured and sold.
