Claudia Moreira Salles by Claudia Moreira Salles( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in Portuguese and English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Brazil's most important contemporary designers, Claudia Moreira Salles (born 1955) combines traditional Brazilian craft with technical precision in her elegant interiors and furniture in wood, concrete, stone and metal. In this fully illustrated volume, Salles describes how she came to create a selection of pieces made over the past decade, revealing, in her own words, her creative process and her influences, from the minimalism of Donald Judd and the modernism of Mies van der Rohe to Brazilian colonial architecture. With a new interview conducted by New York-based curator and design critic Karen Stein, an illustrated chronology and technical drawings for all of the projects surveyed, Claudia Moreira Salles is the most up-to-date publication on this critical figure in contemporary design, and an essential reference for professionals, students and design lovers

Sintonia fina : luminárias = lamps by Claudia Moreira Salles( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Portuguese and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book features a series from internationally recognized furniture designer Claudia Moreira Salles. Claudia is known for furniture, which primarily uses wood, crafted with delicacy, precision and accuracy. The new series brings a new raw material, niobium. And therein, a color, a subtle palette and beautiful. The wood remains, but without leadership. The book shows not only lamps and light fixtures, but also their production: the photos record the niobium transformations during the process of canonization, a bath during which it assumes various tones, almost magical in the eyes of the reader. The artisanship with demolition wood, used as the basis for the pieces with mounting accuracy

Befriending death : over 100 essayists on living and dying by Michael C Vocino( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's not easy to speak about death in our culture. As children of revolution, we think of our country as young, energetic, and future oriented. Our ideals of progress and vigor seem contradicted by the concept of death. But the silence about death in America is a lost opportunity for people to find insight and support in walking "that lonesome valley" In Befriending Death, over 100 writers respond, in one page each, to one question: In the face of death, how do you find meaning and fulfillment in life? Penned from people from a variety of backgrounds, the essays take death seriously and openly and discuss how the authors find meaning in life. This chance for a rare sharing of views on a truly profound subject has attracted commentators who are deeply religious and those who are not religious, noted authors and people who have never published a word, people celebrated by the world and people ignored by the world. As they are all equal in their mortality, they are equal in striving for an authentic existence and an honest description of what for them constitutes fulfillment. While each essay in Befriending Death is unique, together they present a tapestry of courage, struggle, and insight. At a time when we are often overwhelmed by the eagerness of people to provide their opinions on politics and sports, here is a rare opportunity to hear people share their most profound views on life and death."

Find meaning make meaning by Karen Stein( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Employing the designer William Morris as a source of inspiration, this project seeks to explore the call for nature and beauty as a part of our lives. Moreover, it interweaves the necessity for experience of the sensual world (the five senses) with the cerebral world (a requisite to igniting the internal imagination), a concept embodied in the form of the book. It advocates a redefining of the book as an imagination sculpture (the external and the internal) reflecting this new definition
