Objects of desire: surrealism and design in dialogue
From the 1930s onwards, the Surrealist movement had a crucial impact on design and continues to inspire designers to this day. Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design is the first book to document this fascinating dialogue. It includes numerous essays and a comprehensive selection of images that trace this reciprocal exchange by juxtaposing artworks and design objects. Some of the artists and designers featured include Gae Aulenti, Achille Castiglioni, Giorgio de Chirico, Le Corbusier, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Antoni Gaudí, Frederick Kiesler, René Magritte, Carlo Mollino, Meret Oppenheim and many others.
