From the elegant modernism of Franco Albini in the 1930s to the organic designs of Patricia Urquiola in the 21st century, the phrase "made in Italy" has long signified innovative industrial design that verges on art. This beautifully illustrated visual history traces the development of industrial design in Italy through profiles of some of its most notable practitioners and their signature works, seen in more than 200 color photos and drawings. Here are such Italian masters as Achille Castiglioni, Joe Colombo, Vico Magistretti, Bruno Munari, Ettore Sottsass, and Marco Zanuso, as well as a roster of international designers who were able, finally, to realize their visions in Italy.

In 1940 Hans Knoll founded the company that bears his name, which quickly earned a reputation for its progressive line of furniture. Florence Schust joined the firm and helped establish its interior design division, the Knoll Planning Unit, and in 1947, the year after their marriage, Hans and Florence added a third division, Knoll Textiles, bringing fabric production in line with a modern sensibility that used color and texture as primary design elements. With essays by design experts, profiles of some 80 designers, and some 400 photos and images of textiles, drawings, furniture, and ephemera, this handsomely produced monograph traces the firm's evolution in the context of modern textile design.
