“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.”

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.

Underground Interiors
Decorating for Alternate Life Styles (Oberto Gili, Norma Skurka Eds.)

At the start of the 1970’s, at the very beginning of renowned photographer Oberto Gili’s professional career (Architectural Digest, Vogue, House & Garden, Town & Country), he moved to Milan to work for L’Esperto, a publishing company…
“… to shoot and produce a book that was to be called ‘Crazy, Mad, Outrageous Interiors’.  I traveled around the world for a year working on this book. L’Esperto dropped the project, but Norma Skurka, The New York Times interiors editor those days, took over and Quadrangle Books published the book in 1972.  It was called ‘Underground Interiors’.”
– Oberto Gili

First soft cover edition of this cult classic interior design book – the only one of its kind. This lavishly illustrated book features the deluxe photography of eclectic and inspired domestic settings  from all over the world c. early 1970s: “Surrealist Interiors”, “Environments”, “Radical Chic”, “Pop Culture”, “Space Age Habitations”…  An incredible piece of interior design history.
