“Over the past few years the debate concerning the traditional relationships between art and design, largely based on a division of ground and on more or less accepted hierarchical relationships, has intensified. New intrigues have built up between art and design, different modalities have to be examined.
In this anthology based on a symposium, design specialists such as Paola Antonelli, Anthony Dunne, Alexandra Midal, Rick Poynor, and Alice Rawsthorn, and art specialists such as Paul Ardenne, Diedrich Diederichsen, and Hal Foster, deliver original contributions that enlighten this dialogue between art and design and question the autonomy of each field.
Edited by Geneva University of Art and Design, distributed by JRP | Ringier”
JRP|Ringier is the biggest art-publisher in Switzerland and for good reason – they have some of the best Swiss talent design their books; ever heard of Gavillet & Rust? ;)
Another design studio that can be added to their growing list of contributors – I highly recommend you look through their portfolio – is Geneva based Schaffter Sahli.
One notable project (I was so close to featuring on SI) is their corporate identity for Montreux Jazz Café. Lovely.
