Book Description

21 May 2008
Fragiles is an eclectic collection of unconventional contemporary work in porcelain, glass and ceramics. Today, these materials are increasingly being used in playful ways by both established and emerging design talents, who are inspired by Modernism, an ironic depiction of kitsch and an expanded repertoire of forms made possible by technological developments such as rapid prototyping. The spectrum and quality of these innovative projects shows a current generation of designers just how relevant and challenging working with these traditional fragile materials can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic made contemporary 7 Oct 2009
By Giulia Power - Published on
Since everything goes in cycles, at least in the world of fashion, art and design, you somehow only need to wait long enough, until something that has been completely outdated becomes cutting-edge again. Just make sure you are the first one to re-discover it and - of course - add a contemporary layer respectively put it into the right context.

Like Gestalten managed to live up to their reputation as the truffle-pigs of the art and design world when they published this book three years ago, thus introducing top-notch objects made of porcelain, glass and ceramics created by contemporary designers. Maybe your Grandma wouldn\t be excited but your kids surely will be!
