Good Design by Bruno Munari

£11

Good Design was published for the first time in 1963 by Scheiwiller Editore. It was then reprinted by Maurizio Corraini and Vanni Scheiwiller together in 1997 to celebrate Bruno Munari’s 90th birthday. In September 1998 it was added to the Corraini Edizioni catalogue. With its good-humoured look at natural shapes seen through the eyes of a designer, this hugely significant book is celebrating its 50th anniversary. An example of good design? An orange - “an almost perfect object where shape, function and use display total consistency”.

Dimension: 12.0 x 12.0 cm
Binding: paperback

Munari is our Italian godfather number two – the first being Enzo Mari. We’re constantly inspired by Munari’s work; it used to be that if we hit a wall, we’d refer to his books. His view of the role and process of design remains at the forefront of today’s design context. He has a playful and intuitive set of values around design and education – one that has nurtured HATO for over a decade. As students it was always hard to source his projects and books, so we’re so happy to sell them here now.

Bruno Munari was a prolific Italian artist, designer and inventor associated with the Futurist, Modernist and Concrete Art movements – and best known for his experimental children's books, foam toys, futuristic light fittings and cube-shaped ashtrays. The idea of play as an essential component to creativity informs much of his work.
