Inventing Modernity Mirjam Gelfer-Jørgensen Monograph on the architect Thorvald Bindesbøll (1846–1908). Thorvald Bindesbøll is primarily known as an artist-maker and the creator of beautiful ceramic vessels and silverware, but throughout his life he also designed buildings, with more projects and completed buildings to his name than one might expect. To reflect this achievement, the book examines his architecture, which is viewed as the underlying basis of his sure grasp of form. A persistent aspect of Bindesbøll’s oevre is his emphasis on function and the clear structure of plans and his priority of form over variation and decoration. Among the buildings that have earned a distinctive place in Danish architectural history are Fiskepakhusene in Skagen, Strandridergaarden on Strandvejen and Bombebøssen in Copenhagen’s Christianshavn district. Lavishly illustrated with new photos and many previously unpublished drawings.
Geometry, Simplicity, Play
Exhibiting Vico Magistretti Mauro Baracco & Louise Wright Following and extending from the Vico Magistretti-Travelling Archive exhibition at the Melbourne Design Week 2019, the book Geometry, Simplicity, Play: Exhibiting Vico Magistretti relates this exhibition to Magistretti's design approach and theoretical thought through texts and illustrations that discuss the above exhibition installation and projects by Magistretti, from both industrial design and architecture fields. The book focused in particular to the sense of 'conceptual simplicity', playfulness and geometry that inform Magistretti's work, is also part of the extended discourse that is undertaken internationally in 2020 over the centenary year of Magistretti's birth date (1920-2006).
Arkitekten Finn Juhl
Esbjørn Hiort Finn Juhl (1912-1989) was one of Danish furniture art's most original designers. He gained world fame with his furnishings for the United Nations headquarters and through his international exhibitions. At the Triennale in Milan in the 1950s he received no less than five gold medals and it was during these years that he won international fame for his furniture. As a space artist, Finn Juhl achieved worldwide fame with his interiors for the UN headquarters in New York, and as an exhibition architect he was the man behind the large exhibitions of Danish applied art abroad, which created the term "Danish Design".
