30 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rising architecture star Shigeru Ban designs and builds graceful structures using organic materials such as paper tubes, bamboo, and engineered wood. He has designed projects at both ends of the client spectrum, from one-room temporary houses for earthquake refugees to private seaside and urban villas, and has won widespread praise for his humanitarian efforts and innovative use of recyclable, affordable materials as well as for his poetic architectural style. This book, designed in collaboration with the architect, presents his projects in sections - paper, wood, bamboo, prefabrication, and skin - that delineate the major themes of his work, accompanied by technical information that documents Ban's pioneering tests on these materials."--Jacket

Color moves : art & fashion by Sonia Delaunay by Matteo de Monti( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painter, textile and stage designer and co-conspirator (with her husband Robert Delaunay) of the Orphist movement, Sonia Delaunay is a heroine of early modernist art and design. Known primarily as an abstract painter and colorist, Delaunay applied her talents and theories to all areas of visual expression, including graphics, interiors, theater and film, fashion and textiles. A characteristic of Delaunay work is a vivid sense of movement and rhythm through careful color combination. Color Moves: Art & Fashion by Sonia Delaunay focuses not only on her art but also her avant-garde fashion designs for her Atelier Simultane in Paris during the 1920s, as well as textiles she designed for the Metz & Co department store in Amsterdam in the 1930s. The book features essays by Delaunay experts Matteo de Leeuw-de Monti, Matilda McQuaid and Petra Timmer, accompanied by more than 300 paintings, drawings, designs, textiles, garments and photographs."

Scraps : fashion, textiles, and creative reuse by Susan Brown( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The textile and fashion industries produce millions of tons of solid waste every year through the many processes used--from yarn production, weaving, knitting, dyeing and finishing, to apparel construction, quality inspection and unsold goods--generating waste at each step. Typically, this waste is sent to landfills, incinerated or, at best, recycled into low-quality fibers used for industrial applications. 'Scraps', published for Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum's exhibition of the same name, presents three designers' alternative approaches to the shockingly high human and environmental costs of textile industry waste. Christina Kim, founder of Los Angeles-based brand Dosa; Reiko Sudo, cofounder of Tokyo textile firm Nuno; and Luisa Cevese, founder of Milan-based accessories and home goods company Riedizioni, all share a profound respect for scraps as repositories of raw materials, energy, labor and creativity. Inspired by the long tradition of using handcraft to give new life to scraps and castoffs, each takes an entirely different approach to contending with textile waste, but all agree that there is much to be gained--aesthetically and financially, as well as environmentally and socially--by making recycling an integral part of their design practice. The delicate beauty of the fabrics featured here ensures a seductive visual experience, framing the exploration of sustainable design practices: using materials and resources efficiently, providing meaningful labor, sustaining local craft traditions and exploring new technologies as integral to the recycling process. Each copy of the book is bound in its own unique discarded Indian woodblock-printed textile with foil stamping.

Alison Berger : glass and light by Alison Berger( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Obsessed with light for as long as she can remember, Alison Berger used to catch fireflies as a child and put them in glass jars, an activity that has inspired more than twenty years worth of exquisite work in handblown glass. In this stunning monograph, Berger presents her evocative light fixtures, functional objects, furnishings, and large-scale sculptures in combination with the diverse imagery and objects that inspired them. Using age-old glass-blowing techniques to create essential forms that capture light and its reflection in different configurations and times of day, Berger's unique process and its rich results feel at once Old World and modern. Featuring photographs of Berger's glassworks, sketches, sources, and studio, this book celebrates the magic of light and the medium of glass as brought together by one of America's most innovative artists
