Hardback, 230x230mm, 156p, English / Dutch (NL) edition , new condition. . ISBN 9789058562357. Het surrealisme mag dan vooral gekend zijn als stroming binnen de literatuur en schone kunsten, toch is de invloed van deze 20e-eeuwse kunstrichting op andere domeinen niet te onderschatten. Ook de wereld van de vormgeving en het hedendaagse design ontsnapt niet aan een gezonde portie surreële humor. Forms with a smile bundelt ontwerpen en objecten van moderne surrealisten en toont aan dat niets is wat het lijkt. Harige tapijten, lampen in de vorm van een melkfles, usb-sticks gesneden uit houten takken of zetels gemaakt uit pluchen troeteldieren. Is het puur humor? Of is het een prikkelend statement verpakt in een aanstekelijke glimlach? Net zoals het surrealisme vertelt design soms meer dan we denken. Gewapend met subtiele ironie trekken deze nieuwe surrealisten ten strijde in een wereld waar een zekere sérieux regeert. ----- Today surrealism may be firstly known as a school in literature and fine arts, but the influence of this 20th-century school on other domains cannot be underestimated. The world of contemporary design doesn't escape a healthy portion of surreal humour. Forms with a smile bundles designs and objects of modern surrealists and shows that nothing is what it seems to be. Hairy carpets, lamps in the shape of a milk bottle, USB sticks cut from wood branches or chairs made from plush toys. Is it just humour? Or is it a stimulating statement wrapped in a contagious smile? Just like surrealism, design sometimes tells more than we think. Armed with subtle irony these new surrealists wage war against a world reigned by a certain sérieux. 0 g. Codice inventario libreria 23224
