Guzzini: Infinite Italian Design
Published by Skira
One hundred years of history of one of the most innovative companies promoting Italian design. This book describes the development of the Guzzini company—100 years of history set out in fascinating detail, with a succession of protagonists of Italian and international culture: Gillo Dorfles, Oscar Farinetti, Aldo Bonomi, Robin Levien, Angeletti Ruzza, Karim Rashid, and many other leading designers. The result is a vast catalog of all types of items for the table, the kitchen, and the home, beautifully designed but extremely practical and recyclable. Some Guzzini collections are on show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and can be found in homes, restaurants, and hotels in eighty-five countries throughout the world. This book will appeal not only to designers, architects, and manufacturers but also to general readers who love to think about their stuff and students who seek to broaden and improve their design expertise.
