The Tube Chair and the Spider Lamp. The Mini-Kitchen or the Total Table with its integrated dishes. The global housing unit, a unique “machine” that aims to encompass all the needs of living— these and other icons of Italian design by the brilliant visionary Milanese designer Joe Colombo expressed a total vision of living that was characteristic of his time. This volume—part of Silvana’s series on 20th-century Italian design masters)—constitutes the first catalogue raisonné of Colombo's work. Around 180 projects are documented, divided between works still in production and historical works and essays by Ignazia Favata and Domitilla Dardi are completed by a critical anthology.
