The contemporary furniture industry of Italy represents a unique collaboration between world-class architects and designers and the manufacturers who risked investing in their innovative creations, from the Luisa chair by Poggi to the Tizio lamp by Artemide. This handsome cloth-covered album surveys these manufacturers from the 1950s to today; Stefano Casciani, deputy editor of Domus, profiles such entrepreneurs as Bruno Danese, Giulio Cappellini and Patrizia Moroso, describing their individual and collective experiences in constructing the image of Italian design worldwide. Norwegian photographer Tom Sandberg provides black and white portraits of each maker, and the book's spot-color layout is reminiscent of mid-20th-century print design.
