              SuperDesign is the only wide-ranging look at the short-lived but powerfully influential movement known as Italian Radical design. In numerous exclusive interviews, unreleased photographs, original drawings and artwork unearthed from personal archives, and newly commissioned photo...graphy of rarely seen works, SuperDesign casts new light on this tumultuous period of design. What started as a largely student-led rally against the establishment and a rejection of accepted design norms became a movement that brought together some of the most dynamic and avant-garde thinkers and creative makers across Italy. SuperDesign reveals how and why these designers changed the way we think about the objects that surround us during this short yet action-packed time. Through enigmatic, confrontational, and even distasteful objects, peppered with innovations in the interiors of youth discos and subversive performances, the Radicals projected design's new era as equal parts Pop Art, play, Surrealism, and futurism. Alongside the exclusive primary source material, SuperDesign features additional essays by top design scholars Deyan Sudjic and Catharine Rossi. This book demystifies these fantastic works and tells the stories behind the often contentious relationships between the key figures of the movement (some of whom remain at odds still, nearly fifty years later). Bridging Hippie Modernism and Memphis, SuperDesign is a lively document of how the iconoclasm and bold experimentation of the Italian Radicals continues to influence design today.

              Objects: USA 2020 (Hardback)

              Objects: USA 2020 hails a new generation of artist-craftspeople by revisiting a groundbreaking event that redefined and elevated American craft. In 1969, an exhibition opened at the Smithsonian Institution that defined the American studio craft movement. Objects: USA united a coh...ort of artists inventing new approaches to art-making by way of craft media. Subsequently touring to twenty-two museums across the country, where it was viewed by over half a million Americans, and then to eleven cities in Europe, the exhibition canonized such artists as Anni Albers, Sheila Hicks, Wharton Esherick, Wendell Castle, and George Nakashima, and introduced others who would go on to achieve widespread art-world acclaim, including Dale Chihuly, Michele Oka Doner, J. B. Blunk, and Ron Nagle. Objects: USA 2020 revisits this revolutionary exhibition and its accompanying catalog--which has become a bible of sorts to curators, gallerists, dealers, craftspeople, artists, and auction houses--by pairing fifty participants from the original exhibition with fifty contemporary artists representing the next generation of practitioners to use--and upend--the traditional methods and materials of craft to create new forms of art. Coinciding with an exhibition of the same title, and featuring essays by some of the foremost authorities on craft, including Glenn Adamson, curator and former director of the Museum of Arts & Design; James Zemaitis, curator and former head of twentieth-century design at Sotheby's; and Lena Vigna, curator of exhibitions at the Racine Art Musuem; an interview with Paul J. Smith, the cocurator of Objects: USA; archival photographs of the original exhibition and important historical works; and lush full-color images of contemporary works, Objects: USA 2020 is an essential art historical reference that traces how craft was elevated to the status of museum-quality art, and sets its trajectory forward.

              This large-format scrapbook, compiling Wendell Castle's press clippings, invitations and ephemera, records both his acclaim and neglect during the golden years of the studio movement Wendell Castle (1932-2018) is regarded as the father of the American studio movement. His innovat...ive work in stack-laminated wood and gel-coated fiberglass from the '60s and '70s is coveted by museums and collectors all over the world. In 1959, Castle's wife, the artist Nancy Jurs, started collecting press clippings, photographs, invitations and personal notes on Castle's work, eventually assembling them into an oversized scrapbook. This scrapbook, reproduced here in exact facsimile, proves that the work created by Castle during these decades had a more lasting impression on his field than he fully recognized--while also allowing us to better comprehend the challenges he faced for not following the herd. These documents demonstrate how Castle almost singlehandedly led the charge to create sculpture within the category of furniture, offering us a deeper understanding of his time and the circumstances surrounding his work.
