Item Description...

Is less really more?In reaction to the reign of Minimalism, designers, artists, and architectsare rediscovering the powerof patterns and embracing dcors once rejected as superfluous, by covering lamps, chairs,rooms or entire faadeswith stripes, polka dots and ornamentaldesigns.

This definitive overviewis the book that launched the new trend inpublications about patterns. Using examples of contemporary work by internationally renowned designers such asFabio Novembre, Claesson Koivisto Runeand Karim Rashid, by architects such as Herzog & de Meuron,Steven Holl and Sauerbruch Hutton,and artists such as Bridget Riley and Gerhard Richter, it lays out a kaleidoscopeof colours and formsbefore the reader.Multidisciplinary approaches and applications, and new interpretations of traditional motifs are illustrated, as well as the impact and influence of technical innovations such as laser engraving and digital millingon the creation and realization of patterns today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautiful but Schizophrenic  Oct 14, 2007
I bought it to be stimulated with erotic patterns like the ones you see on the cover and a few pictures shown here, and I got more than what I asked for. I get dizzy going through this book. I think it would ease my confusion if the book were organized in the order other than the names of artists/designers/architects. As for the ornaments in architecture, it seems to be short of rigor to read it as a continuation on the line of discussion. However, being introduced to artists/designers I did not know about was something I needed, and the captions in the back of the book are quite good. I would recommend it if you were interested in it as a reference catalogue for these reasons.
