Offering an unrivaled record of architecture and design, the "living diary" of domus was founded by Gio Ponti in 1928. Through the years and decades that followed, the journal charted the major themes and movements of industrial, interior, product, and structural design with an eye for creative excellence as much as editorial rigor.This fresh reprint features domus's coverage from the transformative years between 1928 and 1939. It is an era famed for the emergence of the International Style when the likes of Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Alvar Aalto, and Richard Neutra channeled modernist ideals into rectilinear forms, restrained surfaces, and open, luminous interiors.The domus coverage of this decisive decade spanned the details and the grand designs. From soaring steel skyscrapers to tubular furniture, its coverage is a definitive record of how light, form, and pared-down aesthetics combined in the pursuit of an honest and utilitarian form for the modern and rapidly industrializing age.domus distilledSeven volumes spanning 1928 to 1999Over 6,000 pages featuring influential projects by the most important designers and architectsOriginal layouts and all covers, with captions providing navigation and contextNew introductory essays by renowned architects and designersEach edition comes with an appendix featuring texts translated into English, many of which were previously only available in ItalianA comprehensive index in each volume listing both designers' and manufacturers' names
