About this deal

First edition in English of legendary designer Bruno Munari's manifesto on the importance of design, a Pelican Original. One of the last surviving members of the futurist generation, Bruno Munari’s Design as Art is an illustrated journey into the artistic possibilities of modern design translated by Patrick Creagh published as part of the ‘Penguin on Design’ series in Penguin Modern Classics.

The designer of today re-establishes the long-lost contact between art and the public, between living people and art as a living thing’Bruno Munari was among the most inspirational designers of all time, described by Picasso as ‘the new Leonardo’. Bruno Munari was among the most inspirational designers of all time, described by Picasso as 'the new Leonardo'. Some stuff I skipped or skimmed, some stuff I was genuinely interested in, I read all the way through.About half of this book is excellent and insightful design theory, which I found compelling and inspiring as a designer myself. All and all, a good quick read, not too boring, some stuff I definitely highlighted/bookmarked and will go back to later. Dizajn je i poziv na estetsku igru prepoznavanja i upoznavanja sa svetom, pravljenje prirode u prirodi. It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance.

There are limits of how far simplicity of structure can be taken, and it is exciting to push things to these limits. Autor zauważa, że naturalne materiały, które nie zostają w żaden sposób zabarwione, starzeją się lepiej, podczas gdy te, których kolor zmieniono, prędko brzydną. Za typograficzną stronę wydania odpowiedzialny jest, jak informuje mnie stopka, Germano Facetti, Włoch, pracujący dla Penguin Books w latach 1962-1971. I liked it, I didn't love it, as much as I expected it to, so let me bullet point what I think you can expect from this book.Hotjar sets this cookie to know whether a user is included in the data sampling defined by the site's daily session limit. Munari attempts to dismantle the myth of the artist as a genius and removes the idea that those labelled as purveyors of refined taste and culture should be restricted to academicians or the general social elite. Bez odpowiedzi i komentarza zostawię za to pytanie, dlaczego lampa zaprojektowana przez Munariego z nylonu i stalowych obręczy w najtańszej wersji kosztuje ponad pięćset dolarów.

Książka pierwotnie została wydana w ramach serii Pelican Books, której misją było przede wszystkim edukowanie czytelnika. Munari insisted that design be beautiful, functional and accessible, and this enlightening and highly entertaining book sets out his ideas about visual, graphic and industrial design and the role it plays in the objects we use everyday.The Penguin on Design series includes the works of creative thinkers whose writings on art, design and the media have changed our vision forever. I approached Munari's book with high expectations (since it's so highly rated), but ultimately found little of interest to latch on to.
