Описание: Alberto Pinto has infused contemporary flair into these— his most recent—interiors, which are the most innovative of his lengthy career.. This sumptuously illustrated book features celebrated designer Alberto Pinto’s most recent interiors. A diverse range of locations—from contemporary apartments in New York and London to an English castle, and from two exceptional yachts to offices in Greece and Turkey—these interiors represent the most spectacular work of his career. Long-time fans of Pinto’s elegant, refined, and luxurious interiors will find new ideas, while new readers will be drawn to his innovative design responses to an eclectic variety of settings. Bringing fresh inspiration to established design principles, Pinto excels at creating a perfect harmony of volume and space. In Alberto Pinto Today, the designer brings together an unprecedented range of styles; he continues to defy ascribed categories and dismiss common preconceptions by translating his own style into each interior, according to the site, his client’s tastes, and his own flair for creativity. To coincide with his company’s fortieth anniversary, Pinto has opened a showroom in Paris and online where a broader market of interiors enthusiasts can access his exceptional furniture and tableware that previously had been reserved for his commissioning clients.
Описание: Drawing on an inspiring range of examples, from a temple-led water management system in Bali that dates back hundreds of years to an innovative e-bike collective in Vienna, Thackara shows that below the radar of the mainstream media there are global communities creating a replacement economy--one that nurtures the earth and its inhabitants rather than jeopardizing its future--from the ground up. Each chapter is devoted to a concern all humans share--land and water management, housing, what we eat, what we wear, our health, how and why we travel--and demonstrates that it is possible to live a rich and fulfilling life based on stewardship rather than exploitation of the natural environment.

Bowls, plates, vessels, and delightful figural pieces have recognizable glazes and coloring that have made Mata Ortiz pottery welcome in many ceramics collections today. This fresh and comprehensive book includes a fascinating discussion of similarities in the bird motif with Acoma Pueblo (New Mexico) pottery. Private and gallery pottery collections were studied, making this a thorough presentation of old and new work. Each form is described with the makers name, decorative details, and dimensions. Both older and emerging artists are well represented, making this an important reference for the classic forms, current styles, and future designs.
