60s Design (Big Art)

60s Design (Big Art)

by PhilippeGarner (Author)


The 1960s offered designers the opportunity to focus on new spaces: airport lounges and concourse, corporate headquarters with their lobbies and open-plan offices. This book documents the many, sometimes contradictory, trends in 1960s design, spanning the Bauhaus school of modernism, pop art, science fiction and the anti-design movement. It covers such topics as the design of mass-produced objects, packaging, advertising art and visual fantasy films, such as Roger Vadim's Barbarella and Stanley Kubrick's 2001 . This book also examines examples of so-called anti-design and the rennaissance of craftmanship following the wave of rebellion amongst the young generation towards the end of the 1960s.
