Description

Founded in 1928 by the great Milanese architect and designer Gio Ponti, who wanted to make it a "living newspaper", domus has been hailed as the most influential architecture and design magazine in the world. Combining style and rigor, he has worked extensively on major themes and style developments in industrial design, product, structure and interior design. This all-new reissue of the 1950s domus brings together the most striking elements of an era marked by post-war optimism.
As memories of conflicts fade, architecture and design go in search of new materials, new forms and applications, and seek to strengthen an international dialogue. You will discover among other key works the achievements of Le Corbusier for the United Nations headquarters in New York, Richard Neutra in California and Oscar Niemeyer in Brazil, Case Study Houses and the furniture of Charles and Ray Eames, office machines Olivetti, ceramics and lighting by Ettore Sottsass and Alexander Girard's Herman Miller Showroom in San Francisco.
