Inhaltsangabe: Matteo Thun, born in 1952, is renowned as one of the founder of Scottsass Associati and of Memphis. His highly individual path is presented here for the first time in the form of a monograph. Endowed with a quite striking, baroque formal language, he has cultivated in quite unparalleled manner the art of designing "anonymous? mass articles for industry. The combination of fun and seriousness, style and gag, content and façade continually challenge him. Yet his emphasis on the decorative, on surfaces, have made him a decidedly controversial figure. He works for companies such as AEG, Philipps, Martin Stoll, Campari, Swatch and many others in the areas of product and interior design, packaging and communication. Five internationally renowned authors, all authorities on his work, describe Matteo Thun, his person and his working methods.
Inhaltsangabe: Matteo Thun was one of the founders of Sottsass Associati, an architectural and designing studio in Milan. In 1981, he co-founded the Memphis Group, which quickly gained an international reputation for its revolutionary and impressive designs. Subsequent to these illustrious beginnings, Thun opened up his own studio in Milan where he is engaged in industrial design, architecture, interior decorating and corporate design for about 100 companies worldwide. Among these are AEG, Phillips, Martin Stoll and Campari. In 1990 he began his work as creative director at Swatch. Thun has cultivated the art of designing "anonymous" mass products for industry. His designs are characterized by the juxtaposition of levity and gravity, style and jest, content and facade. This is a study of his work.
