New Italian Design
By Nally Bellati
Introduction by Alessi
Sharp and brash, experimental and impossible, the “new” Italian design from the 1980’s to 90’s explored the sculptural, the political, the absurd, the material and the human aspects of design. Traditions were re-interpreted and history was questioned, all with a sense of play and craftsmanship. With super layouts, tons of great photos and so many forgotten designers to research. This book is a definite keeper. And Ps. Rizzoli published it, enough said.
