Eva Zeisel by Lucie Young( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Known for her lyrical and shapely ceramic work, Eva Zeisel is one of the truly great designers of the twentieth century. In her 75-year career, she has designed over 100,000 objects and led a remarkable life that has taken her from Hungary to early Soviet Russia, and finally to the United States. Her designs are a reflection of a strong independent character that is never professionally or personally constrained by convention, trends, or current ideology. The humanistic aspect of her design is universally felt in the way she combines organic interrelationships with abstract Modernist ideas. She was the first designer in America to produce an all-white Modernist dinner service (an event celebrated by a special exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1946) and the first to teach ceramics as industrial design for mass production, rather that as a handicraft. And she continues to produce to this day."--Jacket

Gaetano Pesce by Marisa Bartolucci( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Labels like "designer," "architect," "artist" slip off Gaetano Pesce. Innovative in his use of materials, daring in his aesthetic stance, and sometimes glaringly confrontational, Pesce is a unique and controversial godfather of the modern design scene. In an introduction to the catalogue of his first art exhibition in 1956, when a mere seventeen, he brashly declared his "right to be incoherent." He still lives and labors by this youthful credo, believing that today "to be" means to live in "infinite and often contradictory ways."" "Compact Design Portfolio: Gaetano Pesce encapsulates Pesce's revolutionary forms and renegade career. With an informative and judicious essay by design critic and Compact Design Portfolio coeditor Marisa Bartolucci, this survey shows how this visionary, continues to challenge the world with new design concepts and images of beauty."--Jacket
George Nelson by Michael Webb( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Compact Design Portfolio: George Nelson explores the long and productive career of an architect who became a towering figure of twentieth-century design as a writer, advocate, impresario, and the head of a unique collaborative design office. Most of the products we associate with Nelson - the platform bench, Marshmallow love seat, Coconut chair, Sling sofa, and bubble lamps - were designed by his talented associates, but it was Nelson who provided the spark. He was among the first to send good design into the general marketplace - notably as design director of and then consultant to Herman Miller." "The Nelson office worked on the cutting edge of design and put to practical use their work in the 1959 American National Exhibition in Moscow - a triumph of technology and enlightened public relations at the height of the Cold War. Nelson himself pioneered the pedestrian shopping mall, developed a revolutionary concept of storage, and pushed the envelope on residential design. He collaborated with some of the foremost designers of his era, including Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, Isamu Noguchi, and Buckminster Fuller. With an abundance of images and an insightful essay by design critic Michael Webb, Compact Design Portfolio: George Nelson celebrates this inclusive genius of classic mid-twentieth century design."--Jacket

His signature piece is Lucellino, a low-voltage bulb fitted with feathered wings that seems to be flying across the room, but he has also made lamps from plastic chicken feet, a tea strainer, an LED board, and holographic light bulbs." "Throughout his career, Maurer has explored the potential of light in large-scale temporary installations at the annual Milan and Cologne design fairs and in museums around the world Maurer is a magician of light, endlessly inventive and unfailingly practical, and his lamps bring a smile to your face and a glow to your life. This collection of photographs and sketches spans his entire career and includes insightful text by design critic Michael Webb."--Jacket
