OP FORMES DES METROPOLES: NOUVEAUX DESIGNS EN EUROPE (Metropolitan Forms: New Designs in Europe). Centre Georges Pompidou, Centre de Creation Industrielle, Paris, 1991. Collection Inventaire. 192 pp. with 209 ills. (90 col.). 31 x 22 cm. ISBN 2858505667 In French.
Exploring the culturally pluralistic, heterogeneous and urban character of postmodern design, this well-illustrated catalogue highlights recent commercial, industrial and interior design projects (as well as one-of-a-kind domestic furnishings, housewares, jewelry and other objects) from nine European centers: Dusseldorf/Cologne, Milan, Barcelona, Paris, London, Vienna, Budapest, Naples and Berlin. Individual essays describe current approaches to design in the featured cities, and five critical introductory texts discuss such topics as the relationship of design to contemporary society and recent political trends, the status of aesthetic values in a technological age, and the reemergence of regional forms and idioms in postmodern architecture.
