Mario Tedeschi bookcase with a nice surreal photographic tableau
For an enlightening diversion of mid century eye candy, I highly recommend exploring the range of incredible design that was given to the world by Gio Ponti’s Domus magazine of Italy during that time. A few years ago Taschen reprinted excerpts from the magazine’s run from 1928 to 1999.
The pictures here are all of Italian designers’ work, but the magazine would feature current design from around the world including the U.S., Scandinavia and the rest of Europe and Japan.
