Résumé : The architectural critic Sigfried Giedion called him the “Magus of the North”: Alvar Aalto (1898–1976) is the best known Finnish architect of his generation and a chief proponent of a different, more human modernism. His buildings such as the Paimio Sanatorium (1933), the legendary Villa Mairea (1939) and the church of the Three Crosses in Vuoksenniska (1958) embody a masterful interplay of organic volumes, forms and materials. From door handles and lighting fixtures to built-in furniture, Aalto frequently designed complete interiors down to the smallest detail. With his plywood chairs, the master builder additionally became one of the most significant designers of the twentieth century. His Savoy Vase represents the quintessential qualities of Finnish and organic design. The richly illustrated book is the first in many years to offer a comprehensive and current overview of Aalto’s oeuvre as an architect, designer and urban planner. Ten authors, such as the renowned architectural historians Eeva-Liisa Pelkonen and Akos Moravanszky and MoMA curator Pedro Gadanho, address central aspects in Aalto’s work. Particular attention is directed to Aalto’s dialogue with important artists of his day, including Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Jean Arp, Alexander Calder and Fernand Léger, as well as his interest in film, cinema and photography whose influences on his work are examined here for the first time. The catalogue section presents numerous never-before-seen original drawings and architectural models from the archive of the Alvar Aalto Foundation. The new contemporary perspective on Alvar Aalto is complemented with photographs by Armin Linke who documented a number of Aalto’s buildings anew especially for this publication. As these images demonstrate: Aalto’s work is as current and inspiring today as at the time of its creation. (source : éditeur).

Résumé : Our homes are an expression of how we want to live; they shape our everyday routines and fundamentally affect our well-being. Interior design for the home sustains a giant global industry and feeds an entire branch of the media. However, the question of dwelling, or how to live, is found increasingly to be lacking in serious discourse. This book sets out to review the interior design of our homes. It discusses 20 iconic residential interiors from the present back to the 1920s, by architects and designers such as Assemble, Arno Brandlhuber, Lina Bo Bardi, and Josef Frank and by artists such as Cecil Beaton and Andy Warhol. Including historic and recent photographs, drawings and plans, the book explores these case studies as key moments in the history of the modern interior. Penny Sparke provides a concise history of the discipline of interior design, Alice Rawsthorn investigates the role of gender, and Mark Taylor discusses the discourse on interior design in the twenty-first century. Adam ?tech offers insights into the use of colour in residential interiors and Matteo Pirola offers a detailed and richly illustrated chronology of significant events in the history of interior design. In a portfolio of photographs selected exclusively for this book, Jasper Morrison explores what makes a good interior. In addition to inter-views with contemporary interior design practitioners, experts in the fields of the sociology of living and psychology provide further insight. This book a valuable resource for anyone interested in interior design.00Exhibition: Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany (08.02.2020-23.08.2020)

Résumé : Les plastiques ont façonné notre vie quotidienne comme aucun autre matériau : des emballages aux chaussures, des articles ménagers aux meubles, des automobiles à l'architecture. Symbole de consommation insouciante et d'innovation révolutionnaire, le plastique stimule l'imagination des designers et des architectes depuis des décennies. Aujourd'hui, les conséquences dramatiques du boom du plastique sont devenues évidentes et les plastiques ont perdu leur attrait utopique. L'exposition «Plastic: Remaking Our World» au Vitra Design Museum examine l'histoire et l'avenir de ce matériau controversé : de son ascension fulgurante au XXe siècle à son impact environnemental et aux solutions de pointe pour une utilisation plus durable du plastique.
