Abitare: 50 Years of Design
Launched in 1961, Abitare became the most innovative design magazine of the 1960s and 1970s - the source of all things hip, important, and avant-garde, as well as most-known information and must-have objects, many of which have become design classics fifty years later. This important compilation brings together the very best of the Abitare universe. Abitare was founded to cover the growing influence of Italian design but also to gather the most interesting trends worldwide, from the mod fashion in London, and the rise of alternative lifestyles in New York and San Francisco, to the development of industrial design in Milan. Classic articles from the magazine are reproduced in full, with their original English and Italian texts, while new essays reflect on the influences of this cutting edge publication. Illus., 250 photographs. 224p. Hardcover.
