The fifth issue of the research book-magazine at the intersection of architecture, art and economy, investigates the forms of intelligences to be considered, learned and transmitted in order to overcome the anthropocene.
Written by one of the pioneers of twentieth-century textile art, this book offers a brilliant meditation on the art of weaving, its history, tools, and techniques, and its implications for modern design (new expanded edition, with three critical texts and color illustrations).
Les presses du réel – Criticism, theory & documents – Design/Théories
Critical re-edition in French of an absolutely precursory and fundamental work for the inclusion of social and environmental issues in the design process: the manifesto of a radical reconfiguration of the field of design, of its forms but above all of its mission.
French designer Gregory Granados imagines the ideal shape of a vase/flower pot for a dancing plant. His discreet and subtle research questions the connection between the shaping of a given material and the sound it emits, investigating the acoustic properties of glass.
The new wave of French and international design: an account of research on the glass vase conducted at the International Research Center for Glass and Plastic Arts, showcasing the work of the ten designers who were awarded the grand prize in the Design Parade Hyères competition, organized each year by the Villa Noailles.
Les presses du réel – Criticism, theory & documents – ArTeC / Labex

This collection presents the first five issues of Everything: reports on the studio of the same name led by Kersten Geers, Fabrizio Ballabio, Jelena Pancevac and Guido Tesio at the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio.
